Abstract

Stroke in children is relatively rare. Advances in the clinical recognition and radiographic diagnosis of ischemic stroke have increased the frequency of the diagnosis in infants and children and have raised the need for immediate therapy. A vast amount of data has recently become available through basic research and neuroimaging techniques shedding new light on the chain of events that occur in ischemic stroke in animal models and in the adult population. Whether this new information can also be applied to the pediatric population remains to be seen, but it is likely that the active management of children with acute ischemic stroke in the near future will include brain protection, brain reperfusion, and prevention measures.
