Intracranial Arterial Occlusion in ChildrenDiagnosis and Follow-Up by Brain Scanning

Am J Dis Child. 1973;126(3):370-371. doi:10.1001/archpedi.1973.02110190326018

Two children had sudden onset of hemiplegia. Characteristic infarct patterns were demonstrated on brain scans, and arteriography confirmed cerebrovascular occlusion. Since pediatric stroke may be a recurring disorder, the brain scan technique which delivers a small radiation dose, is recommended as a means of long-term follow-up.
