Abstract

Neonatal stroke may occur silently. Identification of potential embolic pathways unique to the neonate is important when investigating the aetiology of infarction and arterial occlusion, and preventing further episodes. This is a case report of an infant with venous thrombus embolising across the foramen ovale causing cerebral infarction and subclavian artery steal syndrome, without neurological signs.
