Perinatal stroke is not rare; the estimated incidence of ischemic perinatal stroke ranks second to the incidence of ischemic stroke in older adults, and exceeds the incidence in childhood by approximately 10-fold. It is defined as cerebro-vascular events that occur between 20 weeks of fetal life and 28 postnatal days. Herein, we report a full-term female infant with multiple recent infarcts involving the anterior cerebral artery distribution. The diagnosis was made through diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging.
