Stroke

Pontine hemorrhages are relatively uncommon. Various atypical manifestations of pontine stroke like eight-and-a-half syndrome, fifteen-and-a-half syndrome, and sixteen syndrome have been described in the past. We came across a case of pontine bleed that presented with bilateral facial palsy, bilateral horizontal gaze palsy, and contralateral sensorineural hearing loss accounting to the hitherto not described “twenty-four syndrome” with Horner’s syndrome and left hemiparesis.… Read More...

Carotid artery web is considered an exceptional cause of recurrent ischemic strokes in the affected arterial territory. The underlying pathology proposed for this entity is an atypical fibromuscular dysplasia.We present the case of a 43-year-old woman with no cardiovascular risk factors who had experienced 2 cryptogenic ischemic strokes in the same arterial territory within an 11-month period.… Read More...

An increasing proportion of patients presenting with suspected stroke prove to have other conditions, often referred to as stroke mimics. The aim of this study was to present a projection of the number of hospitalized strokes, transient ischemic attacks (TIAs), and stroke mimics in Norway up to the year 2050 based on expected demographic changes, to estimate the burden of stroke mimics in the coming decades.… Read More...

Changes in cerebral perfusion during migraine with aura (MA) have been assessed mainly using dynamic susceptibility contrast (DSC) magnetic resonance perfusion imaging. A contrast agent-free method to assess these changes would be desirable. We assessed changes in cerebral perfusion during MA using arterial spin labeling (ASL) perfusion magnetic resonance imaging.… Read More...

Improved long-term survival of malignancy has drawn increased attention to late cerebrovascular toxicity after neck radiotherapy. Recently, neck radiotherapy has been found as a significant risk factor of carotid artery stenosis and ischemic stroke; however, long-term adverse effects of radiation in large arteries remain unknown.… Read More...
