In this study we identified the risk factors for cerebrovascular disease in the paediatric age group of our population. Stroke in the paediatric age group is probably due to a combination of several risk factors which will need structured protocols for identification. It is important to recognize these causes so as to plan strategies for action during the acute phase and to prevent recurrence, as are currently available to the adult population.
