Optimal treatment for ischaemic stroke in paediatric acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) is unclear. We describe an ischaemic stroke in an adolescent with ALL who underwent successful endovascular thrombectomy following leukaemic arterial occlusion. Endovascular thrombectomy should be considered in paediatric ALL patients with acute ischaemic stroke and large vessel occlusion.
