The electrocardiograms of 37 patients with cerebral lesions were reviewed. Twenty-two had a cerebral vascular accident due to a thrombosis, eleven were due to intracranial bleeding and four had brain tumors. In the thrombosis group, non-specific ST-T wave changes that could not be attributed to heart disease was found in 77% of the group. An abnormal QTc was found in twelve of the twenty-two patients (55%). Non-specific ST-T wave changes were observed in six of the 11 patients (55%) with a cerebral hemorrhage and three of the four patients with a brain tumor. These EKG abnormalities are mainly due to altered autonomic tone which may affect the EKG as a result of functional alterations of ventricular recovery time and/or by the production of anatomic cardiac lesions.
