Abstract

We present the case of a 60-year-old female patient, who developed symptomatic internal carotid artery stenosis and subsequently underwent carotid endarterectomy. Four days after an uneventful surgery the patient developed confusion, seizures, and was admitted to the ICU. CT perfusion revealed reduced ispilateral time-to-peak and mean-transient-time and increased cerebral blood volume and cerebral blood flow, confirming the diagnosis of cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome. We thus propose CT perfusion as a diagnostic means for cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome, a syndrome that remains underdiagnosed.
