Introduction: Stroke is one of the main causes of mortality worldwide. Stroke survivors suffer from pain and a variety of physical disabilities as well as mood disorders, such as depression. More than 25% of stroke survivors permanently disabled and lose daily independence activities; thus, effective treatment is essential. For a long time, researchers have tried to find ways to reduce the brain damage following stroke. Trying to find Pharmaceutical ways in spite of the huge economic investment has failed. In addition to pharmacological treatments, rehabilitation of stroke is important. It is likely that molecular changes are crucial for spontaneous recovery. The purpose of this systematic review was to evaluate the effectiveness of hypothermia for reducing mortality and morbidity after stroke. This is a quantitative research to achieve the objectives using of the previous study analysis. Conclusion: Empirical work and clinical observation have shown the relationship between temperature and brain damage in stroke; in which stroke with fever is associated with a significant increase in mortality. Prevention of temperatures rising in the early stages of stroke has been advised. Although stroke rehabilitation is beneficial, significant achievements occurs within the first hours and days after the stroke. Understanding of the protective role of hypothermia may improve the efforts to reduce the brain injuries following stroke.
