Stroke and metabolic disorders in Children

Stroke is more common in males than females even after controlling for differences in frequency of causes and this appears to be with a predominance of stroke in black children. This difference remains true even after accounting for sickle cell disease patients with stroke and moreover seizures are common in both ischemic and haemorrhagic strokes. They occur in up to 50% of children with strokes are not restricted to any age group and are not limited to any specific seizure type. A stroke or cerebral vascular accident (CVA) in children is typically considered to be a rare event. The reported incidence of combined and haemorrhagic ischemic pediatric stroke ranges from 1.2 to 13 cases per 100,000 children under 18 years of age.
