A method of retrograde brachial arteriography suitable for cerebral angiography in the infant has been described. In the eight infants studied, the entire intracranial circulation was visualized in four infants (50 per cent), and in the other four infants only the contralateral middle cerebral circulation failed to be delineated. No complications, including vascular, have resulted from angiographic investigation in this group of eight infants. Retrograde brachial cerebral angiography is recommended as a simple, safe method for study of cerebral disease in the infant.
