Stroke Diseases and Syndromes

  • Jarrah Ali Al-Tubaikh


Stroke can be a symptom rather than an actual disease. Some systemic diseases present in the form of stroke. Other diseases or syndromes are associated with stroke as one of their diagnostic criteria. Some syndromes or diseases arise due to stroke in a certain area of the brain. This topic discusses some of the known and uncommon causes, syndromes, and diseases of stroke.
