Cervical arterial dissection (CAD) is an important cause of childhood arterial ischemic stroke (1). Dissection occurs following a vessel wall tear or rupture of the vasa vasorum with formation of an intramural hematoma. Secondary thromboembolism in the vessel territory can cause an ischemic stroke. Dissections may be traumatic or spontaneous. Trauma ranges from severe (direct neck trauma, rapid deceleration or hyperflexion), to trivial (vomiting or coughing). ©2012 The Author(s)/Acta Paediatrica ©2012 Foundation Acta Paediatrica.
