    Internal carotid artery (ICA) lesions in the parapharyngeal space (a dissection and a pseudoaneurysm) may present as isolated lower cranial nerves (IX, X, XI, and XII) palsy (Collet-Sicard syndrome). Some arteriopathies such as fibromuscular dysplasia and tortuosity make a vessel predisposed to...

    Arterial tortuosity syndrome (ATS) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder in which patients display tortuosity of arteries in addition to hyperextensible skin, joint laxity, and other connective tissue features. This syndrome is caused by mutations in the SLC2A10 gene. In this article we...
