The stroke-related symptoms depend on the area of the brain affected, the extent of the damage, and the cause of the stroke. In infants and very young children, stroke symptoms include seizures, coma, and paralysis of one side of the body; the signs of a stroke may not appear until months, perhaps even years, later so that the child cannot use one hand as agilely as the other or the child may have a slight limp. When stroke occurs in older children, symptoms include a sudden paralysis of one side of the body, difficulty with vision, and/or difficulty with swallowing.
