We report a term infant who presented with focal seizures and was diagnosed with a large left hemispheral infarct. Evaluation revealed extensive fetomaternal hemorrhage and subsequent neuroimaging disclosed a classic border zone infarct consistent with a hypoperfusion injury. We postulate that fetomaternal hemorrhage should be considered in the differential causation of neonatal stroke. The unilaterality of the lesion in this patient is difficult to explain.
