Ischemic stroke in patient with existing congenital hypoplasia of the middle cerebral artery
|I. Manchev, T. Manolova, L. Manchev|
Presented is a clinical case of a woman 29 years old with ischemic stroke (IS), which has developed abruptly in existing congenital hypoplasia and occlusion of the middle cerebral artery. There are no other well or less well documented risk factors for cerebrovascular disease. In family history noted that the father of the patient died suddenly at the age of 45 years from stroke, also without evidence of vascular disease. On magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain is found high signal zone in the left nucleus lentiformis. We discussed the possibilities for implementing conventional angiography and eventually surgical procedures unfortunately rejected due to the high risk to the patient.
