Stroke is defined as a focal neurological deficit that lasts more than 24 hours and has a vascular base. Its incidence in the childhood is low, but it can cause an important morbidity and mortality. The low incidence, the multiple clinical manifestations with which it can be presented and the low awareness of it are the causes that induce a delay in diagnosis.
