Abstract

Artery to artery embolism is one of the main causes of cerebral infarction, and it can originate from many locations. Here we report a case of cerebral infarction in which calcified cerebral emboli were detected in brain computed tomography (CT). The calcified emboli were thought to originate from a carotid plaque that showed calcification and ulceration. We present histologic and micro-CT findings of a carotid plaque as a source of artery to artery embolism.
