Abstract

Background: Cerebrovascular accident (CVA) is a dangerous process that results in tissue damages and imposes heavy costs on societies. Therefore, finding a parameter for CVA prognosis and a way for its treatment is important. Considering some contradictory findings regarding the relationship between the highly sensitive – C reactive protein (hs-CRP) and ischemic CVA, this study aimed to evaluate the level of hs-CRP in patients with stroke. Materials and Methods: This case-control study was carried out on 40 patients (case) with acute ischemia (age range, 45-80 years) referred to Kashan Shahid-Beheshti hospital during 2009-2012 and 40 healthy subjects (control). Two groups were matched for age and gender they did not have the underlying diseases increasing the level of hs-CRP. The hs-CRP was measured in the patients and then compared. Moreover, the patients' clinical status was evaluated on admission using the Scandinavian Neurologic Stroke Scale. Results: Each group consisted of 22 women and 18 men. In both groups, the mean hs-CRP value in women was significantly higher than the men. There was no significant difference between the two groups in the mean hs-CRP value. Conclusion: There is no direct relationship between hs-CRP level and ischemic cerebral stroke.
