• In the reported case, angiography did not elucidate findings definitive of basilar dissection.
• Using our standard vessel wall (VW) MRI protocol, pre- and post-contrast T1- weighted sequence with black-blood sequence, we identified an intimal flap and double lumen and confirmed the diagnosis of dissection.
• Follow up with time-of-flight MR angiography and VW-MRI showed resolution of initial findings, suggestive of luminal healing.
Isolated basilar artery dissection is an uncommon intracranial vasculopathy with a poor prognosis. Digital subtraction angiography is considered the definitive modality for diagnosis. Vessel wall MRI (VW-MRI) is an emerging non-invasive technique for assessing the structural integrity of intracranial vessel walls and lumina. Recently, a small number of studies have described the vessel wall patterns of intracranial artery dissection. However, studies on vessel wall imaging of isolated basilar artery dissection remain limited. We describe a patient with suspected isolated spontaneous basilar artery dissection diagnosed using VW-MRI.
