Stroke is the second leading cause of death and the main cause of long-term disability in the world. Therefore, treatment of the sequelae of stroke is one of the most important challenges in clinical neurotherapy. A 63-year-old Chinese woman with inarticulateness and right limb physical activity disorder for more than 4 months received olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs)-based neurorestorative therapy during the stay in hospital. Her neurological functions improved during 1-year follow-up. This case report showed that OECs therapy could be a treatment option for cerebral infarction sequela.
