Neurology is the branch of medicine that deals with the diseases of the brain and the central and the peripheral nervous systems. Neurologists are the physicians who are trained in diagnosing, treating and managing patients with neurological disorders. The most important task to manage the global burden of neurological disorders is to have a clear-cut view of the Epidemiology of the nervous disorders. And for which the simple ‘head count’ method will not be as effective as the statistical assessments and projections of the burden of health conditions and diseases. There are more than 600 neurological disorders and for recognizing the signs and symptoms of neurological problems, it is first important to distinguish the various types of neurological disorders and infections of the nervous system. Stroke is a leading cause of death among the world population and it attacks both adults and children. Stroke is the most common presentation of Cerebrovascular disease. If a blockage, malformation, or haemorrhage in blood vessels prevents the brain cells from getting enough oxygen, brain damage can result. Cerebrovascular diseases can develop in various ways, including deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and atherosclerosis, where plaque builds up in the arteries. Stroke, transient ischemic attack, aneurysms, and vascular malformations are all types of cerebrovascular disease. Other examples include a narrowing or blockage in the carotid, intracranial, or vertebral arteries, known as stenosis.
