Hypertension is a recognized risk factor for stroke and recurrent stroke. Studies have found that more than 75% of patients with acute stroke are associated with elevated blood pressure. We report a patient of hypertension with ischemic stroke who had a history of lymphoma and developed systemic atherosclerosis with good control of long-term blood glucose and lipid. Based on the literature, the etiology and treatment were discussed, suggesting that the cause of atherosclerosis may be related to the radiotherapy, chemotherapy and targeted therapy of lymphoma. It is pointed out that the target of blood pressure should be determined according to the actual situation of the patient rather than guadlines only. At the same time, the difference between stroke and coronary arterial disease in the secondary prevention was also revealed. Ticagrelor does not reduce the risk in the secondary prevention of ischemic stroke, and 21-day dual antiplatelet therapy (aspirin and clopidogrel) is recommended for patients with mild stroke starting within 24 hours to prevent stroke recurrence within 90 days.
