31 young patients who were hospitalized and rehabilitated after acute cerebral stroke, we are reassessed. In 58% there was a wide array of underlying diseases and risk factors, while in the others the cause could not be established. 74% suffered from nonhemorrhagic, thrombotic or embolic phenomena and 25% from intracerebral or subarachnoid hemorrhage. There were no alarming preceding signs. After an average of 31 months following the cerebrovascular accident, more than 90% were independent in all daily living activities. Functional outcome did not depend on the underlying disorder.
