Abstract

An accepted classification system exists for ischaemic stroke in adults; however, this system is of limited use for categorizing strokes in children, as the aetiology of paediatric stroke is often different from that in adults. A new anatomically based classification system provides standardized criteria specifically for paediatric stroke.
