Isolated brachiocephalic artery dissection presenting as acute stroke.
Isolated brachiocephalic artery dissection is an extremely rare condition. Its presentation as an acute stroke can pose a significant diagnostic challenge in patients because of its rarity. We present a case of isolated spontaneous brachiocephalic artery dissection presenting as acute cerebrovascular accident. This case also illustrates the treatment dilemma brachiocephalic artery dissection can present, whether to choose antithrombotic/anticoagulation therapy and/or surgery, and also the dilemma in blood pressure management.
