Occlusion of vertebral artery due to transverse canal osteochondroma

Abstract : Osteochondroma is a non-rare benign osseous neoplasm [1] that is often observed within the posterior arch of vertebrae. Vascular compression may be observed because of this exuberant bone formation [2]. Vertebral artery compression in transverse canal is exceptional. We report on a case of vertebral artery occlusion related to compressive osteochondroma, responsible for acute stroke in the vertebrobasilar system.
