Introduction

Blunt cerebrovascular injury (BCVI) has become increasingly recognized in the pediatric population as a serious injury with potentially devastating consequences. However, very little data about these injuries exist in the pediatric population. BCVIs include carotid or vertebral artery dissection and possible pseudoaneurysm formation which may lead to bleeding, stroke or significant neurological deficits - especially with delay in diagnosis and treatment [1]. The challenge to the clinician lies in the initial asymptomatic nature of these injuries.
