The azygos anterior cerebral artery (AACA) is a rare anomaly of the circle of Willis with an incidence of 0.3–2% of the overall population. It is characterized by a single vessel which provides the blood supply to both anterior cerebral hemispheres. Male patient, 63 years old, previously hypertensive and diabetic, admitted to the emergency room with a sudden lowering of the level of consciousness. He went through cerebral computerized tomography that showed ischemic cerebral stroke image in the typical irrigation territory of the bilateral anterior cerebral artery (ACA), with the characterization of a single hyperdense vessel for a probable topography of ACA. Cerebral angiography showed AACA with endoluminal thrombus, about 1?cm of its common origin, reducing the vascular flow completely, determining an ischemic stroke in the frontal lobe bilaterally and anterior regions of the corpus callosum. The patient presented worsening from the clinical point of view, evolving to death during hospitalization.
