Abstract

Here we describe the case of a young woman with a late diagnosis of vertebral artery dissection and midbrain ischemic lesion after minor post traumatic injury. Doppler ultrasonography was used as the first diagnostic examination to evaluate the dissection. We present this unusual but not rare case related to the frequent events of cervical distraction after car accident in order to better understand the clinical approach the sensitivity Doppler ultrasonography in post-traumatic cervical distorsion.
