ABSTRACT: Numerous factors make the initial diagnostic evaluation of children with suspected arterial ischemic stroke (AIS) a relatively unsettling challenge, even for the experienced stroke specialist. The low frequency of pediatric AIS, diversity of unique age-oriented stroke phenotypes, and unconventional approaches required for diagnosis and treatment all contribute difficulty to the process. This review aims to outline important features that differentiate pediatric AIS from adult AIS and provide practical strategies that will assist the stroke specialist with diagnostic decision making in the initial phase of care.
