Background: Stroke in patients with acute cervical artery dissection may be anticipated by initial transient ischemic or nonischemic symptoms. Aim: Identifying risk factors for delayed stroke upon cervical artery dissection. Methods: Cervical artery dissection patients from the multicenter Cervical Artery Dissection and Ischemic Stroke Patients study were classified as patients without stroke (n=339), with stroke preceded by nonstroke symptoms (delayed stroke, n=244), and with stroke at onset (n=382). Demographics, clinical, and vascular findings were compared between the three groups. Results: Patients with delayed stroke were more likely to present with occlusive cervical artery dissection (P
