Abstract
We present an extremely rare case of a variant
of persistent primitive hypoglossal artery, which was found
incidentally in magnetic resonance angiography during an
examination for dizziness. This anastomotic vessel arose
from the external carotid artery (ECA), not internal carotid
artery, and entered the hypoglossal canal to basilar artery.
To our knowledge, this is the fourth reported case of the
persistent hypoglossal artery arising from the ECA. The
possible clinical implications of this anomalous vessel are
discussed.
