Abstract

Posterior circulation stroke usually presents with clinical challenges, and symptoms may include blindness. Hypoplastic or atretic cerebral artery may be a risk factor for future ischemic stroke. We present a 75‑year‑old male patient with posterior cerebral artery ischemic stroke who presented with sudden visual deterioration, and brain magnetic resonance angiography showed hypoplastic right P1.
