Abstract

Two cases of cervicocephalic arterial dissection of the intrapetrous carotid artery are described. One patient presented with intolerable objective pulsatile tinnitus, the other with a cerebral infarction. Both were successfully treated with anticoagulants. The significance of minor degrees of trauma and of neck extension in the aetiology of these apparently spontaneous lesions is discussed.
