Abstract

Introduction Pediatric stroke, while increasingly recognized among practitioners as a clinically significant, albeit infrequent entity, remains challenging from the viewpoint of clinicians and researchers. Discussion Advances in neuroimaging have revealed a higher prevalence of pediatric stroke while also provided a safer method for evaluating the child's nervous system and vasculature. An understanding of pathogenic mechanisms for pediatric stroke requires a division of ages (perinatal and childhood) and a separation of mechanism (ischemic and hemorrhagic). This article presents a review of the current literature with the recommended divisions of age and mechanism. Conclusion Guidelines for treatment, though limited, are also discussed. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.
