Sequential Thalamic Hemorrhage and Ischaemia in the Percheron Artery Territory

Conrado J. Estol, Ricardo Mora, María de la Paz Chang, Manuel Vincenti and Marcelo Costilla

Abstract
Bilateral thalamic ischemia and hemorrhages are unusual. They almost exclusively affect the posterior paramedian thalamic region supplied by the artery of Percheron and rarely the anterior polar artery territory causing a variety of cognitive, arousal and personality deficits. To our knowledge, we report the first patient who had the unusual presentation of a left paramedian hypertensive thalamic hemorrhage followed within three days by a right paramedian thalamic infarction.
