Spontaneous dissection of the internal carotid arteries usually presents with unilateral headache, neck pain, focal ipsilateral cerebral ischaemic symptoms and a Horner's syndrome. Lower cranial nerve palsies are only rarely observed. We report a case of carotid and vertebral dissections presenting as a unilateral palsy of the ninth to twelfth cranial nerves (Collet-Sicard syndrome).
