    Can late functional rehabilitation be an obstacle in the recovery of stroke sequelae ? Extraordinary improvement in a severely disabled patient

    Abdoul Aziz A*, Mahamadou S and Abderrazak H

    Rehabilitation is one of the most useful ways of treating patients who have suffered a stroke. Its precocity in the management of patients often allows having a good functional prognosis. In case of a sequela stroke complicated by and significant comorbidities, functional recovery is difficult. Despite this we are surprised to have a convincing result. We report a case of sequelae of a straight stroke complicated by right transtibial amputation in a 57-year-old patient over two years after the accident. The initial assessment found a bedridden patient with significant musculoskeletal impairment. After ten months of follow-up requiring the intervention of a multidisciplinary team, the final assessment revealed a significant functional recovery, despite the persistence of some difficulties limiting the total autonomy of the patient.
