The posterior communicating (PComA) and anterior choroidal arteries (AChA) are the two major branches of the supraclinoid internal carotid artery. Thorough knowledge of the anatomy and awareness of the variations and anomalies of these arteries are of clinical and scientific importance in dealing with lesions involving these arteries and their branches. This article briefly reviews surgical and angiographic anatomy of the PComA and AChA.
