Disease Infarction, Posterior Cerebral Artery

Name Infarction, Posterior Cerebral Artery
Synonyms Embolic Infarction, Posterior Cerebral Artery | Infarction, PCA | PCA Infarction | Posterior Cerebral Artery Embolic Infarction | Posterior Cerebral Artery Infarction | Posterior Cerebral Artery Stroke | Posterior Cerebral Artery Syndrome | Posterior Cerebral Artery Thrombotic Infarction | Stroke, Posterior Cerebral Artery | Thrombotic Infarction, Posterior Cerebral Artery
Definition NECROSIS induced by ISCHEMIA in the POSTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY distribution system which supplies portions of the BRAIN STEM; the THALAMUS; TEMPORAL LOBE, and OCCIPITAL LOBE. Depending on the size and location of infarction, clinical features include OLFACTION DISORDERS and visual problems (AGNOSIA; ALEXIA; HEMIANOPSIA).
