Abstract

Carotid artery dissection is usually unilateral. Rarely bilateral forms can be seen. Recent studies have shown the efficacy of computed tomography angiography (CTA) in the diagnosis of carotid dissection. Herein we report a case with bilateral carotid artery dissection diagnosis and follow-up which was carried out using mainly CTA.
