Abstract

Despite extensive evaluation, the cause of many childhood ischemic strokes remains unexplained. Two children are reported with stroke and lupus anticoagulant. Both had family members with features of the antiphospholipid antibody syndrome. Children with unexplained ischemic stroke should be evaluated for lupus anticoagulant and anticardiolipin antibodies.
