Do seizures at stroke onset increase the risks of thrombolysis?

Current guidelines for the treatment of acute ischemic stroke exclude patients with seizure at stroke onset from consideration for thrombolytic therapy. It may be difficult to differentiate an ischemic stroke from postictal Todd’s paralysis by clinical examination and noncontrast CT scan. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with diffusion- (DWI) and perfusion-weighted images (PWI) and angiography (MRA) can be used to confirm the diagnosis of an acute ischemic process in the presence of concurrent seizures.
