Tabatabai, G; Schöber, W; Ernemann, U; Weller, M; Krüger, R (2008). Vertebral artery dissection presenting with ispilateral acute C5 and C6 sensorimotor radiculopathy: A case report. Cases Journal, 1(1):139.
Spinal manifestations of vertebral artery dissection (VAD) are rare events and are typically symptomatic with neck pain and ischemic brain injury. We report a patient presenting with unusual peripheral paresis of the right upper limb due to an intramural hematoma of the right vertebral artery with local compression of C5 and C6 as the cause of cervical radiculopathy. These symptoms completely resolved after anticoagulation and physical therapy.
