Persistent Primitive Trigeminal Artery That Mimics Persistent Primitive Otic Artery on Cerebral Angiography

Abstract

Persistent primitive trigeminal artery (PPTA) is the most common carotid-basilar anastomosis; on the other hand, persistent primitive otic artery (PPOA) is extremely rare. PPTA is often misdiagnosed as PPOA on cerebral angiography. We present a case of PPTA that mimicked PPOA on cerebral angiography. We further describe the utility of brain computed… (More)
