Abstract

The clinical symptoms at onset and neurological findings of 193 consecutive patients with an acute cerebral infarct were analyzed to determine if the frequency of their occurrence allowed one to distinguish among patients with a cardiac source of embolus (SOE) (106 patients), an aterial SOE (38 patients) or no demonstrable SOE (49 patients). Rapidity of onset and loss of consciousness at onset were the only symptoms significantly more frequent in the group of patients with a cardiac SOE.
