Abstract

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.
