- A 3-year-old girl was diagnosed as having suffered from a stroke
- The primary culprit doctors saw was the chickenpox virus
- Her parents didn't suspect that their daughter already suffered from a severe stroke
A three-year-old suffered from a stroke which surprised many netizens because those who normally suffer from this condition are old people.
KAMI learned that the girl had a bout with chicken pox before she suffered from the stroke.
According to TheAsianParent, the family of three-year-old Lottie Evans, was at the park in Abersoch, North Wales when the incident happened.
Her parents started noticing that the little girl was weak even though they were at the park.
They thought it was because she has just recovered from her chicken pox, and so they had her sleep.
However, when they were already in the car, they were surprised that she could no longer speak, and she started vomiting.
When they brought her to the hospital, the initial findings of the doctors were cerebral palsy.
A nurse commented that the girl might have suffered from a stroke, which was also confirmed by two CT scans.
They were then told by the doctor that she would not be making full recovery within 14 days.
"At that point, we were given a ray of light. Doctors believe the stroke was caused by chickenpox, which had narrowed an artery in Lottie’s neck when she had the virus three months earlier," said the mom of Lottie.
The story of Lottie sends a strong warning to all parents to be aware that even children as young as three years old could also suffer from a stroke.
