Posterior cerebral artery syndrome
|Posterior cerebral artery syndrome|
|Outer surface of cerebral hemisphere, showing areas supplied by cerebral arteries. (Pink is region supplied by posterior cerebral artery.)|
Posterior cerebral artery syndrome is a condition where the blood supply from the posterior cerebral artery is restricted, leading to a reduction of the function of the portions of the brain supplied by that vessel.
Because this artery supplies the occipital lobe, this condition can be associated with visual defects.
