Abstract

Stroke mimics refer to conditions manifesting with neurologic deficits without underlying cerebrovascular diseases. Major causes in the paediatric population under this category include infections, inflammation, demyelination, neoplasm, drug related, phacomatosis, and miscellaneous disorders. These conditions and their respective imaging findings are briefly discussed here.
