Spectrum of cerebral arteriopathies in children with arterial ischemic stroke


  • Specific clinical profiles associated with cerebral arteriopathies in children with arterial ischemic stroke (AIS) may serve as a guidance in the management of these cases.

Why this matters

  • Identifying and classifying cerebral arteriopathies in children is challenging in clinical practice due to the imaging technique, inconsistent and inaccurate diagnosis, and lack of standardized terminology and diagnostic criteria.

  • Determining the clinical profiles of different arteriopathy subtypes may assist in the diagnosis and classification of childhood cerebral arteriopathies.
