The annual rate of stroke is eloquent and is responsible for some 60,000 deaths with 130,000 to 150,000 new cases per year, or a stroke every four minutes. This pathology is a public health priority that is underestimated in terms of morbidity and mortality as well as in terms of medico-economic costs and burden for the health system. Recidivism is a predictive factor of lethality for the victim. We report in this article the case of a 58-year-old patient who had been admitted in the Neurology department at the Fann National University Hospital and who had an ischemic stroke 14 days after hospitalization for a hemorrhagic stroke. Its evolution was unfavorable marked by the death on day 33 of his hospitalization.
