Ischemic stroke in the pediatric population is rare; however, stroke in children in the acute setting can be missed because of its low prevalence. Care for acute pediatric strokes involves determining the most likely etiology in a timely manner, understanding available resources, and making the best choice based on the information at hand, according to Kristin Guilliams, MD, MSCI. Guilliams, an associate professor at Washington University School of Medicine, recently gave a talk on tailoring hyperacute management of stroke in the pediatric population at the recently concluded 2023 American Neurological Association (ANA) Annual Meeting, held September 9-12, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
