  • Look Inside

A 54-year-old woman complaining of left hemiplegia was transferred to our hospital. Computed tomogra-phy on admission demonstrated normal. Electrocardio-gram showed atrial fibrillation. Cerebral blood flow (CBF) was decreased in both the cortex and the per-forator territory of the right middle cerebral artery (MCA), whereas the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) in the cortex was normal. Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) revealed an occlusion of the right MCA (M1 proximal) with collateral flow from the right anterior cerebral artery (ACA) to the territory of the right MCA.
