Hypertension is one of the major health problem in the world. The objectives of this study were to know the distribution of blood groups among the subjects and to assess the association between ABO blood groups and Hypertension. This study was carried on two groups of Subjects by personal survey. Samples were randomly selected from different communities of Biraul Block. The control group consists of normal 294 healthy subjects while the patient group consists of 206 patients. It was founded that blood group O is more predominant among hypertensive patients. There was no statistically significant association between ABO blood group and Hypertension.

Keywords: ABO blood groups, hypertension, biraul block
