Abstract

Arterial ischaemic stroke in the paediatric population is considered a rare disease, and its diagnosis is often delayed due to the subtlety and variability of clinical symptoms, especially in younger patients. The clinical presentation and imaging features of ischaemic stroke in the paediatric population are variable depending on the underlying cause, affected artery and patient's age. Literally, acute occlusion of the middle cerebral artery shows significant clinical signs and symptoms, and riotous imaging findings due to the size of the territory. Here, we present a case of a 15-year-old boy who unusually had subtle and intermittent clinical symptoms in spite of a complete acute occlusion in his right middle cerebral artery.
