    Cerebellar ischemic stroke is one of the common causes of vascular vertigo. It usually accompanies other neurological symptoms or signs, but a small infarct in the cerebellum can present with vertigo without other localizing symptoms. Approximately 11 % of the patients with isolated cerebellar...

    Background Double origin of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery (DOPICA) has been rarely reported in the literature, with a reported incidence of 1.45%. In contrast, a high concurrence rate of DOPICA and vertebral artery dissecting aneurysm has been reported. Clinical presentation A 61-year...
