Abstract

Posterior cerebral artery (PCA) dissection in children seldom is reported in the literature. This is the second report of acute PCA dissection with infarct occurring in a young child. A serial magnetic resonance angiography demonstrated a delayed and transient narrowing of the arterial caliber, which was consistent with a focal PCA dissection with delayed vascular recanalization. PCA dissection should be included in the causes of infarct in children and a thorough and serial neurovascular imaging should be considered if no cause of stroke is found.
