Carot­id stump syn­drome ­occurs infre­quent­ly. Diag­no­sis and man­age­ment ­requires flow stud­ies with ­duplex ultra­sound scan as well as ana­tom­i­cal delin­ea­tion of the affect­ed ves­sel by mag­net­ic res­o­nance angio­gra­phy. Sur­gi­cal exclu­sion of the inter­nal carot­id ­artery is safe and effec­tive and is the gold stan­dard of treat­ment with best med­i­cal ther­a­py.
