Introduction: Thyroid dysfunction has been associated with cerebrovascular accidents (CVAs) and is an area of active research in the present times. Materials and Methods: In the present study we tried to establish a relation between the variation in thyroid profile and ischemic CVAs in 75 patients who were admitted to our hospital within 48 hours of the event. Results: Of the 75 patients, 43 had nonthyroidal illness syndrome (NTIS), 13 were euthyroid, 6 were hyperthyroid, 9 were subclinical hypothyroid, and 4 were hypothyroid. Conclusion: In ischemic cases, high mortality rates were observed in euthyroid patients followed by patients with NTIS. A low FT3 level was associated with unfavorable outcome as accessed by the Glasgow Coma Scale and the Scandinavian Stroke Scale scoring.
