The cerebral arterial circle has the shape of a decagon; its vascular components are as follows: subparts of the cerebral parts (C4) of paired internal carotid arteries, precommunicating part (A1) of paired anterior cerebral arteries connected by network configuration of the anterior communicating artery (ACoA), and then the left posterior communicating artery (PCoA), which connects and divides ipsilateral PCA in the precommunicating (P1) and postcommunicating (P2) parts.
The patient was finally diagnosed as the case of bilateral moyamoya disease based on CT angiogram, which showed severe bilateral stenosis and occlusion of supraclinoid segments of bilateral internal carotid artery (ICA), middle cerebral artery (MCA), and proximal A1 and bilateral Anterior Cerebral Arteries (ACAs), with an extensive collateral formation and enhanced vascularity in both cerebral hemispheres (please refer to Figure 1).
The anterior cerebral arteries interconnect to the anterior communicating artery whose patency allows interhemispheric potential shunts in case of obstructions or stenoses in the vascular network [4].
(3) The two anterior cerebral arteries frequently differ in size at their origin and the larger one reinforces the other through anterior communicating artery.
