Early endovascular treatment can lead to significant improved functional outcome. We present a case of 19-years old boy with acute ischemic stroke by distal middle cerebral artery occlusion. A selective thrombus aspiration with Penumbra system was performed. Satisfactory recanalization was achieved with significant recovery of the patient.
