Neurologic disorders represent a major burden of disease globally. These are common and represent a major public health problem. The spectrum of diseases ranges from non communicable disorders like stroke and neurodegenerative disorders to central nervous system infections. The burden of neurological diseases may be on the increase especially in developing countries. Improved outcome in these settings may require appreciation of the spectrum of neurological diseases and the impediments to their management.The pattern of neurological admissions in hospital varies amongst different regions of the world and this depends on many factors including the regional burden of neurological disorders.
