Stroke is notoriously difficult to treat and the ability to forecast stroke is critical but has been challenging making the detailed study of predisposing factor essential. There is good evidence that modification of risk factors will reduced the risk of stroke. The aim was to determined the serum lipid profile in sample of patients with stroke between age (50-75) years. The study was conducted at the department of neurological at Ibn-Sina Teaching hospital in Mosul City, It receive cases either directly from their consultation unit or referral cases from primary care unit (PHCS) which distributed throughout Mosul city.The type of stroke (ischemia or infarction)must be considered when studying association between blood lipid and occurrence of stroke. Elevated level of total cholesterol, LDL and triglyceride are associated with occurrence of cerebral infarction. The lower total cholesterol level among patient with cerebral hemorrhage in compare to patient with cerebral infarction have been found.
