Abstract: Dyslipidaemia is a major risk factor for cerebral infarction. The LDL targeting goal can significantly reduce the risk of cerebral infarction. 4 There has been a number of publications on the role of lipid disorders and outcome in stroke. 5-10HDL is known to promote the transport of extra-hepatic cholesterol back to the liver hence reducing serum cholesterol thereby preventing Ischaemic stroke. It therefore shows that, HDL cholesterol level has an inverse correlation with the risk of stroke Therefore this study was designed to find out the patterns of dyslipidaemia in cases of strokes. The present study was planned in the Department of Pathology, Patna Medical College and Hospital, Patna from Feb 2018 to July 2018. The diagnosis of stroke was confirmed by taking CT scan of brain. The total 75 patients were enrolled in the present study. Out of that 25 cases were diagnosed with haemorrhagic stroke and 25 cases were diagnosed with ischemic strokes. To compare the parameters 25 control patients were also enrolled in the present study. The lipid profiles of the patients were done on fasting state. The samples were sent for the analysis and results were compiled and studied further. The data generated from the reported literate suggest that stroke is a multifactorial disease, there are multiple risk factors involved for the disease occurrence. Hence lipid profile assessment is proven to be of help to alert patients. Early recognition and treatment is helpful for reduction in morbidity and mortality.
