Bone disorders are among the most uncommon causes of stroke, but they should be considered as stroke cause in particular clinical scenarios. On the other hand, osteoporosis/osteopenia and increased fracture risk are well documented post stroke complications. The relationship between stroke and bone health is complex. The current facts suggest that these two conditions share same risk factors, but also are risk factors for each other. However, the evidence shows more clear effect of stroke on the bone health, than in the opposite direction. This extensive review is aiming to fill the huge gap of evidence about this topic, and since bone pathology is extremely rare cause of cerebrovascular accident, although a complex connection between these two conditions definitely exists.
