Lenin's Stroke

Abstract : Lenin's stroke remains a matter of debate. Here, we propose to assess the potential mechanisms. Lenin died on January 21, 1924 at the age of 53 years. Although some doctors suggested that the origin of his health problems was neurosyphilis, the autopsy findings were consistent with a severe atherosclerosis. This process might account for his recurrent ischemic strokes. In view of the family vascular history, an early hereditary atherosclerosis may be proposed.
