Intracranial atherosclerosis of the anterior circulation (anterior ICAS) and intracranial atherosclerosis of the posterior circulation (posterior ICAS) are thought to involve different pathogeneses and risk factors. Recently, we identified a genetic variant that has a significant association with ICAS. The variant was ring finger protein 213 (RNF213) c.14576G>A (rs112735431), which was originally identified as a susceptibility genetic variant for moyamoya disease (MMD). The present study investigated the association of RNF213 c.14576G>A with anterior and posterior ICAS.
