Abstract

Radiation-induced intracranial vasculopathy is a rare complication following treatment of intracranial tumors. We treated a 49-year-old woman presenting with severe middle cerebral artery stenosis 14 years post-radiotherapy. As more patients are treated successfully with radiation therapy for intracranial neoplasm, stenotic cerebrovascular disease may become a more common etiology for ischemic infarction in this patient population.
