Answer

CPH can occur at any age, with the mean age of onset being 34 years. [11] Patients as young as age 6 years have been described in the literature, while the oldest known patient with CPH was age 81 years. [12, 13] In one report, CPH beginning at age 3 years was described; however, the condition may have been related to ipsilateral occipital hemorrhagic infarction in this patient. [14, 15]
