Abstract

Infectious diseases precede a significant proportion of acute ischemic strokes in children. Here, wreport a case of acute ischemic stroke in a 3-year-old girl with a Mycoplasma pneumonia-associaterespiratory tract infection. She developed an acquired prothrombotic state of protein S deficiencand had increased fibrinogen and fibrinogen degradation product levels and increased titer oantinuclear antibodies. However, these conditions were completely alleviated at the 1-month followup examination. Infection with M. pneumoniae may cause a transient prothrombotic state that capotentially cause a thrombus.
