Early Description of Stroke
Though doctors now know the causes and implications of a stroke, the condition hasn’t always been well understood. Hippocrates, the “father of medicine,” first recognized stroke more than 2,400 years ago. He called the condition apoplexy, which is a Greek term that stands for “struck down by violence.” While the name described the sudden changes that can occur with a stroke, it didn’t necessarily convey what’s actually happening in your brain. https://www.healthline.com/health/stroke/history-of-stroke#early-description-of-stroke
