Most ischemic stroke is caused by atherosclerosis (large- and small-vessel disease) and cardioembolic sources (eg, atrial fibrillation). However, it is important to recognize the clinical, laboratory, and radiologic manifestations of rarer causes of stroke since the treatment may vary from the treatment of more typical causes. This chapter reviews the less common causes of stroke in addition to stroke in special situations: stroke in children, stroke in pregnant women, spinal cord infarction, and venous thrombosis.
