Artery of Percheron Occlusion in an Elderly Male: A Case Report

Yuh-Ming Chang, Yang-Kai Fan


Acute bilateral paramedian thalamic and mesencephalic infarcts are uncommon. Occlusion of the artery of Percheron (AOP) is presumed to cause this specific stroke syndrome. However, occlusion of the AOP is rare and early diagnosis is challenging. Here we described a 70-year-old male patient who presented with acute disturbance of consciousness due to acute bilateral paramedian thalamo-mesencephalic infarction secondary to AOP occlusion. Anticoagulant therapy was administered, and his consciousness gradually improved.
