Abstract: 

Introduction: Cerebrovascular disorders are the third leading cause of death in individuals over the age of 50; mental disorders of this origin are reported in up to 50 and even 78 percent of patients. The global goal of this study was to assess mental disorders of stroke patients.
Methods: In a cross-sectional study, 100 consecutive stroke patients in the neurology clinic of Rasool hospital were evaluated by accidental sampling and use of Neuropsychotic Inventory (NPI). Data was analyzed using Chi square and t-test.
Results: 37 men and 63 women with mean age of 62.5 years were assessed over 1 to 12 months after their stroke. The results of Chi square suggested men patients had higher frequency in subscales of delusion, aphaty, disinhibition and sleep disorders and women patients in subscale of anxiety. The results of t-test reported that there was a correlation between right hemisphere lesions and euphory.
Conclusion: Depression, anxiety and aggression were the most common mental disorders after stroke, respectively.
