The left sided paralysis was having significantly high mortality of patients (49%) while recovery was significantly high (56.2%) in the patients with right sided paralysis. The paralysis with Grade O power was in 58% of stroke patients and was associated with signifi­cantly high (53.4%) mortality while 100% recovery was found in patients with power grade 4 and 5 at the time of admission. The G.l. haemorrhage was associated with 5% of patients but mortality was significantly high (100%) in these patients. The level of consciousness of grade / was highest (34%) while mortality was significantly high (100%) in the patients admitted with grade 3 level of consciousness.
