Abstract

The authors present a case of persistent hypoglossal artery. Persistent hypoglossal artery is the second most common carotid-basilar anastomosis with a frequency of 0.02% to 0.09% and it can be associated with cerebrovascular disease. Diagnosis is by imaging methods and angiotomography is the method most often employed.

Keywords

carotid artery, hypoglossal artery, hypoglossal canal

Resumo

Os autores apresentam o caso de persistência da artéria hipoglossa. A artéria hipoglossa é a segunda anastomose carótida-basilar mais comum, com frequência de 0,02% a 0,09%, podendo estar associada a doenças vasculares cerebrais. Seu diagnóstico se faz através de métodos de imagem, sendo a angiotomografia o método mais utilizado.
