Abstract

Low serum cholesterol has long been associated with hemorrhagic stroke even though the mechanism for this association has yet to be elucidated. The association of low serum cholesterol with hemorrhagic stroke has been described thus far only in adult studies. There have been no reports of this association in children. We present a case of a hemorrhagic stroke that occurred in a 6-year-old, severely malnourished child who had just received augmentation of cardiac output with a pulsatile left ventricular assist device.
