Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 12-year-old male with intracranial dolichoectasia (ICDE), a rare dilatative arteriorpathy. Results of the cranial computed tomography-angiograpy (CTA) are highlighted which revealed fusiform dilatation and ectasia of supraclinoid internal carotid arteries (ICAs). The importance of controlling blood pressure in the prevention of ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke is emphasized.
