Resumen

SILVARINO, Ricardo et al. Spontaneous internal carotid artery dissection as a cause of ischemic stroke in the young. Arch. Med Int [online]. 2009, vol.31, n.1, pp.37-39. ISSN 0250-3816.

Ischemic strokes are unusual in young individuals. Spontaneous dissection (SD) of the cervical carotid arteries (CA) is a known cause of stroke in the young. The present paper reports a clinical case of ischemic stroke secondary to the spontaneous dissection of the internal carotid artery (ICA), updating its prevalence, risk factors and medical treatment. The frequency of the SDCA is highlighted as a cause of ischemic stroke in the young and discusses the role of diagnostic arteriography in the evaluation of stroke in this age group, the association of SDCA with congenital and acquired thrombolythic factors, as well as the need to tailor anticoagulation therapy

Palabras clave : Strokes in the young; Cervical Arteries Spontaneous Dissection; Carotid Artery Spontaneous Dissection.
