  Background: Stroke is one of the important causes of death. However the prognostic factors are not clearly defined. There are many evidences which show the role of inflammatory factors during the progression of stroke but the relation of CRP and stroke is still vague. This study was designed to determine the relation between CPR Level and WBS with severity of stroke (according to CNSS score) and volume of infarct in stroke patients.

  Methods and Materials : This is a cross sectional study performed during the winter and spring of 2007 on 49 patients with stroke hospitalized in Vali-e-Asr hospital of Arak.Clinical examination was done by using CNSS scoring. The CRP and WBC were measured in the first 72 hour of onset of the disease. The CT scanning together with infarct volume estimation was performed at the same time.

  Results : There was no correlation between the volume of infarct with CRP serum level (r=-0.14, p=0.39 ) and WBC (r=-0.17, p=0.92 . Also there was no correlation between CNSS score with CRP level (r=-0.04, p=0.81) and WBC (r=-0.124, p=0.40) too, but there was a significant correlation between CNSS score and stroke volum in brain CT scan (r=-0.43, p=0.006 ).

  Conclusion: According to data in this study there was no correlation between serum acute phase reactant, the volume and severity of infarction.
