Descrição

It is the most variable cerebral artery and has a variable territory depending on the size of the AICA. Typically, the PICA may supply:

  • posteroinferior cerebellar hemispheres (up to the great horizontal fissure) : cerebellar tonsils, biventral lobule, nucleus gracilis, superior semilunar lobule, inferior portion of the vermis
  • lower part of the medulla

Stroke pattern:

Common type of cerebellar stroke: headache, vertigo, nystagmus, ipsilateral axial lateropulsion, gait and appendicular ataxia.

More or less complete dorsal lateral medullary syndrome (Wallenberg syndrome) if the medulla is involved: ipsilesional vestibular  (vertigo, vomiting, nystagmus, lateropulsion), V, IX and X cranial nerve palsies, Horner syndrome, appendicular ataxia with contralesional loss of pain and temperature sensation. Hiccups are frequent and prolonged.
