Abstract

Aortic dissection is an infrequent but important cause of acute ischemic stroke (AIS), and must not be overlooked because of a possible worse outcome, especially with the use of an intravenous recombinant tissue plasminogen activator. We report a case of left carotid artery dissection and AIS originating from localized aortic arch dissection, pathologically caused by cystic medial necrosis in the tunica media.
