Abstract

The authors describe a patient in whom a segment of the internal carotid artery (ICA) was coiled. The segment was excised and examined by light microscopy, and transmission and scanning electron microscopy. The elastic tissue in the tunica media of the coiled portion of the artery was absent or greatly reduced and showed no laminar structure. The elastic tissue dysplasia supports the congenital origin of coiling of the ICA.
