ABSTRACT
Dolicho-ectasia of the left posterior cerebral artery and internal carotid artery in a 5-year-old boy is reported. There was compression of the brainstem, the mammillary bodies and the optic tract. The value of MR angiography in the diagnosis of this vascular anomaly is demonstrated. Dolicho-ectasia of more than one cerebral artery in a child is extremely rare.
