Abstract

A patient presented clinically with acute bilateral carotid artery thrombosis and at autopsy had fresh dissecting aneurysms of all four major cervical arteries. The underlying vascular disorder was fibromuscular dysplasia. It is suggested that relatively minor injury to vessels already pathologically involved contributed to the multiple dissecting aneurysms in this patient.
