Narrowing of the terminal internal carotid artery and severe stenosis of the bilateral middle cerebral arteries are seen on the CT-angiogram (A) and MR-angiogram (B and C) images. The axial fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) image (D) shows bilateral ischemic lesions. (Contributed by Dr. Aneesh B Singhal.)
