Abstract

Intracranial embolization usually arises from the heart, a vertebrobasilar artery, a carotid artery, or the aorta, but rarely from the distal subclavian artery upstream of an embolus. We report on a patient who experienced left shoulder and forearm pain with weak blood pressure and pulse followed by concurrent onset of left hemiplegia. This case is a rare example of multiple cerebral embolic infarctions, which developed as a complication of distal subclavian artery thrombosis possibly associated with protein S deficiency.
