ABSTRACT
A patient complaining of typical tie douloureux is found to have a persistent carotid-basilar anastomosis. The incidence, review of literature, embryology and anatomy are presented. The relationship of the anomaly to trigeminal neuralgia and to collateral circulation in thrombosis or ligation of cervical carotid artery has been discussed. Although tic douloureaux was considered earlier in the literature as a possible cause and effect situation, this is the first patient to he reported with tie douloureux in the presence of an ipsilateral persistent carotid-basilar anastomosis. We believe the incidence to be around 1 to 1.5 per cent rather than .001 per cent, and bears investigating in a young patient with tie douloureux of unknown etiology.
