Stroke following a bicycle injury

Indian J Pediatr. 2007 Sep;74(9):856-8. doi: 10.1007/s12098-007-0153-4.

Abstract

Stroke is not an uncommon problem in children. However, stroke following intraoral trauma is rare. A high index of suspicion of neurological complications following apparently asymptomatic oral trauma helps to identify this peculiar form of childhood stroke.
