Neurological sequelae occur in more than 50% of children with arterial ischemic stroke. Early recognition and treatment are essential in improving outcome. However, diagnostic delay in paediatric stroke often extends beyond 24 hours, and children rarely access hyperacute recanalisation therapies. This review describes clinical presentations, risk factors and treatment of paediatric ischaemic stroke. Additionally, we share our experience from a systematic paediatric stroke pathway implemented in Eastern Denmark since 2017.
