In Germany, stroke affects approximately 300 children each year. Treatment options for stroke patients, particularly for children, are limited. A case is described of an 18 month old girl with hemiparesis, who showed a considerable degree of recovery over the course of 21 months while receiving Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture using soft laser. This may represent a new option for the therapy of such patients.
