Aim: 1) To compare serum electrolyte levels (sodium and potassium levels) in cerebral Infarction and cerebral hemorrhage. 2) To compare serum electrolytes in thalamic and other intracranial hemorrhages. Material and Methods: In this retrospective type of study, we compared serum electrolyte levels of 70 patients, 45 diagnosed as cerebral infarction with the 25 patients, diagnosed as cerebral hemorrhage. The sample for electrolyte analysis was collected within first 24 hrs of onset of the event. Result: Statistical analysis was done by Z test and independent t test using SPSS 16 which showed statistically no significant difference in serum electrolyte levels in both groups there was also no statistical difference in serum electrolyte levels in thalamic hemorrhages compared to other intracranial hemorrhages. Conclusion: Electrolyte imbalance is common in cerebrovascular accidents and needs to be intervene as early as possible irrespective of the type of cerebral insult. Correction of electrolytes imbalance can help in better prognosis of the patient and may avoid complications.
