Variation of a Persistent Primitive Hypoglossal Artery (PPHA) as Incidental Finding in the Diagnostic Clarification of Cerebral Vasculopathy Associated with Intracranial Vasculitis.

Abstract

We present a very rare variation of a persistent primitive hypoglossal artery (PPHA) arising from the internal carotid artery, detected during a diagnostic angiography. A 50-year-old female patient was admitted with an atypical intracranial hematoma in the left frontal lobe. Catheter angiography revealed intracranial vasculopathy with segmental stenoses, a… (More)
