Internal carotid agenesis

Internal carotid agenesis: Introduction

Internal carotid agenesis: A very rare malformation where the carotid artery fails to develop. Other brain blood vessels enlarge to try to compensate for the defect and this leads to compression of parts of the brain which can cause neurological symptoms. The severity of symptoms is determined by how well the existing brain blood vessels are able to compensate for the absence of the carotid artery. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Internal carotid agenesis is available below.
