The aim of the present study was the comparative analysis of the role of specific hemorheological derangements in the pathogenesis of ischemic brain infarcts in women (I group) and group with male patients (II group). Blood plasma viscosity, as well as red blood cells (RBC) aggregability were quantitatively investigated in all patients during the study. Research blood rheological methods: Red blood cell (RBC) aggregation – «Georgian method» and the standart capillary method for  measurement of blood plasma viscosity. Both of the above mentioned indices of hemorheological disorders were significantly higher in the patients in II group as compared to the control and I group. During the ischemic stroke, blood plasma viscosity was increased by a mean of 7.2 per cent in the first and by a mean of 9.6 per cent in the second group of patients. As to the erythrocyte aggregability index, it was changed considerably more – by a mean of 123.8 per cent during stroke in male patients, while in femele patients the RBC aggregability index was found to be increased by a mean of 107.3 per cent. Ischemic brain infarcts in patients in I group and in II group were associated with a significant increase of the patients' blood rheological disorders in all the investigated cases.
