OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this manuscript is to review the various etiologies and to discuss the therapeutic issues in childhood stroke. METHODS: A PubMed search of literature pertaining to childhood stroke was conducted from 1983 to 2008 using specific key search words pertinent to cerebrovascular disorders in childhood. RESULTS: The analysis of the multiple causes of childhood stroke including arterial ischemic strokes and cerebral venous thrombosis was presented. Current therapy and outcome data in childhood stroke are also discussed throughout the length of the article. CONCLUSIONS: With increasing vigilance among physicians and improved neuroimaging modalities, the diagnosis of childhood stroke is now made earlier, with increasing frequency and greater accuracy. However, larger and well-controlled studies regarding the optimal management of childhood stroke in terms of the use of both antithrombotic drugs and anticoagulation are still needed in addition to longitudinal follow-up studies of children with stroke.
