Abstract

A 26-year-old patient underwent a successful ablation of Grade 2 diffuse astrocytoma of the right parietal lobe. The postoperative computed tomography angiography with 3D modeling revealed a residual avascular porencephalic cyst. Otherwise, multiple arterial variants have been encountered. First, the left A1 segment was fenestrated, and three A2 segments arose from the anterior communicating artery. The middle A2 segment was dominant and supplied left callosomarginal and both pericallosal territories. The right A2 segment supplied the right callosomarginal territory, while the left A1 was limited to the left orbitofrontal and frontopolar territories. This configuration represents a triplicated anterior cerebral artery with an unusual branching pattern not included in the classification of Baptista. In addition, on both sides, superior cerebellar artery duplication was present, with one arising from the basilar artery and the other from the P1 segment of the ipsilateral posterior cerebral artery. The left lower superior cerebellar artery was early bifurcated. It is the first time such a cerebrovascular configuration has been reported. Because of the several clinical and surgical applications of the anterior cerebral artery and superior cerebellar artery variants, this case report is of utmost interest to anatomists, radiologists, and neurosurgeons.
