Introduction: Perception of the visual vertical (SVV) is affected by cerebral hemispheric lesions. Knowledge of this disturbance is of interest for the study of its possible relation to balance disturbances and sense of equilibrium.

Aims and Objective: To see the effect of stroke on balance and vestibular component.

Methodology: Ten subjects were included in the study. Subjects were asked to perform time up and Go test, MSQ and Dynamic Gait Index.

Results: The mean value of MSQ for 10 subjects was found to be 49.4. Vestibular component is affected moderately in 7 of 10 patients. The mean value of TUG is 51.86.

Conclusion: On the basis of the present study we concluded that, the orientation of vertical position and balance is affected in stroke patients.
