Abstract

Post-traumatic cerebral infract is a recognized complication of head trauma. Majority of the infarcts are in the posterior cerebral artery (PCA) or anterior cerebral artery (ACA) territory due to transtentorial or subfalcine herniation respectively. SCA infarct following head injury has not been reported in literature. We describe a patient with severe head injury, who had multiple infarcts postoperatively, including a SCA territory infarct.
