The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Patients had weakness in 48, altered sensorium in 72, speech disturbance in 65, vomiting in 35, headache          in 61 and convulsions in 32. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). GCS score 3-4 was seen in 4 with mortality of 3, 5-8 was seen in 10 with mortality of 1, 9-13 was seen in 22 with mortality of 1 and 14-15 was seen in 38.
