Traumatic carotid artery dissection may appear after blunt head or neck trauma. Patients were either asymptomatic or clinically symptoms may include loss of consciousness, hemiparesis, aphasia and Horner syndrome, these typically occurring after an interval of hours to days. Patients were either asymptomatic or clinically symptoms may include headache, transient ischemic attack, stroke, Horner Syndrome and loss of consciousness, these typically occurring after an interval of hours to days. Prognosis is good if an early diagnosis and treatment were established. As cerebral ischemia and neurological deficits may develop in subsequent periods, it is essential that the carotid artery dissection should be kept in mind for possible cases in order to evaluate and diagnose it properly. In this article, we present a case of internal carotid artery dissection including diagnostic neuroimaging, which occurred after 6 hours of blunt trauma and subsequent cerebral infarction following a car accident. Clinical features, neuroradiological diagnostic methods and treatments options are discussed with the relevant literature.
