• Basilar artery occlusion occurred in a 13-year-old boy. Eighteen cases in children reported in the literature were also analyzed. Basilar artery occlusion is more common in males. The main clinical manifestations are disturbance in consciousness, hemiplegia or quadriplegia, and pupillary abnormalities. The prognosis is better in children than in adults.
