This study includes retrospective analysis of clinical outcomes after ischemic, hemorrhagic strokes and TIA in childhood. After ischemic stroke movement problems are more often in the acute beginning than since one year, but since one year after hemorrhagic strokes movement problems are in 2,5 times often than in the start. Symptomatic epilepsy with pharmacoresistens seizures, mental and speech retardation, death cases are frequently after hemorrhagic strokes. In addition, we show a clinical case of child who have symptomatic epilepsy after hemorrhagic stroke.


Keys words: strokes, children, seizures, paresis, mental and speech retardation.
