AB  - INTRODUCTION: The societal and economic impact of ischemic stroke in young adults
      is considerable. The etiological investigation of ischemic stroke in this
      population is also challenging. OBJECTIVE: To describe the characteristics of
      young patients with ischemic stroke admitted to a neurological rehabilitation
      program in Brazil. METHODS: This transversal retrospective study analyzed data
      from the electronic health records of 134 patients aged 18 to 45 years with
      ischemic stroke admitted from 2008 to 2012. RESULTS: The average patient age at
      the time of ictus was 33 years; 56% of the subjects were female, and 29.3% had
      undetermined etiologies of stroke, on the basis of both TOAST and SSS TOAST
      criteria. Further, 48.7% of the subjects had a known vascular risk factor, which 
      was arterial hypertension in most cases. The results of thrombophilia testing
      were positive in 13.7% of patients, but in only 3.7% of patients, thrombophilia
      was determined to be the causal mechanism of the stroke. There was a significant 
      association between thrombophilia and patent foramen ovale, but no significant
      association was found between thrombophilia and arterial dissection. Among the
      patients with artery dissections, 46% had a history of trauma, which was
      statistically significant. CONCLUSIONS: Etiological diagnosis of stroke in the
      young is challenging for clinicians. Hence, a more effective classification
      scheme, better investigative mechanisms, and correct determination of causal
      associations in ischemic stroke are needed. Thrombophilia screening should be
      performed in the presence of relevant clinical signs and/or family history.
