Left posterior cerebral artery occlusion following minor head trauma: a case report
A 17-year-old male patient who received a punch behind the left ear 2 days ago, was admitted to the emergency room with a headache and dizziness. His neurological examination was normal. Brain CT images demonstrated diffuse hypodense areas and sulcus deletion in the left occipital lobe. On MR images, diffusion restriction for acute ischemia in the left PCA watershed area was determined, and hospitalization was recommended. However, he and his relatives left the hospital. Through the electronic information system called “e-nabız”, it was learned that the patient was hospitalized in an external center and treated with antiplatelet and anticoagulant regimens for ten days due to an acute thrombus at the left PCA P1 distal-P2 level observed on the brain CT and MR angiography images. In our clinic, his neurological examination was completely normal thirty days later. Still, a visual field examination revealed a total quadrianopsy in the upper temporal pole on the right and left eyes. An encephalomalacia in the left PCA watershed area was observed on CT images. The findings of this case showed that minor head trauma in children can cause large vessel occlusion and therefore close follow-up of these children for a certain time would be appropriate.
