Ischemic Cerebellar Stroke in a 4-Year-Old Boy After Chickenpox: An Atypical Vascular Involvement.

Cerebrovascular events in pediatric population are very rare. Up to 30% may result from varicella zoster (VZV) arteriopathy, usually as a delayed complication of varicella primary infection. The most typical pattern includes involvement of anterior brain circulation arteries, probably by VZV migration from the trigeminal ganglia. Strokes related with VZV usually have a good prognosis, but risk of recurrence is greater when compared to other stroke etiologies in this age group. We report the case of a 4-year-old boy, immunocompetent, who presented a basilar artery stenosis and a cerebellar stroke, an extremely rare presentation of VZV arteriopathy. The investigation workup and treatment are detailed, as the clinical and imaging follow-up after one year.
