Stroke is a public health emergency. This study was carried out in the markets of the District of Abidjan, from April to June 2018, to evaluate the knowledge of Traditional Medicine Practitioners on stroke related to its risk factors, sequelae and phytotherapeutic tools used for treatments. Based on semi-direct interviews, 306 herbalists were interviewed. The results showed that hypertension (Fc = 100%) is the major risk factor known by practitioners. Hemiplegia (95.5%), aphasia (80.1%), slurred speech (66.2%) and vision (48.1%) were the main sequelae. A total number of 101 medicinal plants, distributed in 93 genera and 49 families are sold on markets. Ficus mucuso (0.19%), Ziziphus jujuba (0.13%), Ocimum gratissimum (0.08%), Parkia biglobosa (0.08%), Catharanthus roseus (0.07%) are the most mentioned species. The calculation of the ICF yielded an average consensus at the plant level used to treat hemiplegia, aphasia and slurred speech. This exploratory study should play a role in the management of patients and development traditional medicines.
