Abstract


Cerebrovascular stroke ranks for most among all the disorder of central

nervous system.  Cerebrovascular accident is the 3rd leading cause of death after cardiovascular diseases.  The incidence of stroke worldwide is 179 per 1,00,000 population where as in India it varies from 52 to 842 / 1,00,000 in various parts. I propose to present my observations in regard of risk factors in 25 cases of cerebrovascular accidents in young individuals with age varying from          15 to 40 yrs and 75 cases with age 41 years and above, admitted in General Hospital and Government General Hospital Kurnool.
