Ischemic strokes in children and young adults are fortunately rare. Contrasted with adult ischemic strokes, pediatric stroke etiologies vary greatly and are often unknown. Childhood lacunar strokes and trauma-induced strokes represent particularly uncommon subsets and have been reported infrequently in the literature. It is unique to find a combination of the 2-a lacunar stroke induced by trauma. Underreporting of these trauma-induced ischemic strokes could be responsible for perpetuating the lack of recognition. Here we present a lacunar stroke in a young woman associated with a water sport accident and explore relevant literature encircling deep brain ischemia coinciding with trauma.
