Abstract: Background: Prompt diagnosis of stroke in resource poor settings without CT/MRI can be done by stroke scoring systems. Allen?sscore, Siriraj score and Greek score are available scoring systems employed in distinguishing stroke subtypes. This study is done to assess the agreeability between results obtained by using these stroke scoring systems. Aim: To assess the agreeability between available clinical stroke scoring systems in diagnosing stroke subtypes. Materials and methods: This cross sectional study was done in 100 new stroke patients at G. S. L. Medical College, Rajahmundry. Clinical scoring systems were employed in all the patients. Cohen?s Kappa value is calculated to find out agreebiality between clinical stroke scoring systems. Results: Cohen?s kappa values are 0.862 for Allen?s score and Siriraj score; 0.740 for Allen?s score and Greek score; 0.664 for Siriraj score and Greek score. Conclusion: Using Allen?s score or Siriraj score yields consistent results unlike Greek score which had disparity in agreeing with results of Allen?s score and Siriraj score.
