ABSTRACT
An 11-year-old child presented with left hemiparesis and a seizure caused by fibromuscular dysplasia of the right internal carotid artery with cerebral infarction is presented. On conventional angiography, the authors found the classical `beaded' lesions. These pathognomic changes were most important to diagnosis. On brain single-photon emission computed tomography, we found the impaired vascular reserve of right basal ganglia, frontal and temporal area. We tried an antiplatelet agent and an encephaloduroarterio-synangiosis on the right hemisphere.
Key Words: Fibromuscular dysplasia; Cerebral infaction; Child; Antiplatelet angent; Encephaloduroarterio-synangiosis(EDAS)
