    Stroke is a rare disorder in childhood; among its risk factors, C677T mutations in the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene with secondary hyperhomocysteinemia are considered. We report on a family in which two brothers had arterial ischemic stroke (AIS). One of these siblings came...
