Abstract

The authors review the literature concerning spontaneous resolution of occlusive lesions involving the carotid artery. They add four cases illustrating three pathological vascular processes that may resolve spontaneously, namely, arterial dissection, atheromatous lesions at the carotid bifurcation, and an arteriopathy involving the intracranial vessels which is poorly understood at this time.
