In Reply We thank Goh and Sivakumaran for their interest in and comments on our article,1 which was a retrospective study of blood pressure, blood glucose, and fever and their associations with outcome after arterial ischemic stroke (AIS) in children. Although we did not find a significant association between hypertension and neurological outcome or death at 3 months after stroke, we found that when carefully tracked, vital sign abnormalities were very common in the poststroke period. In our future directions section,1 we proposed a larger prospective study precisely because of the limitations of our study design and conflicting results with a prior study that found that hypertension was associated with increased mortality but not poor neurological outcome at 1 year after stroke in children.2
