Two cases of agenesis of the internal carotid artery are presented. The first case is a patient in whom the diagnosis is made following a distortion of the cervical column occurred following a crash from a road accident; previously the diagnosis of traumatic artery dissection was formulated. The second case is a patient who has had a headache for about a month and pain in the right side of the neck, resistant to analgesic therapy, due to the dissection of the right vertebral artery. The clinical and radiological pictures that allow the correct differential diagnosis are discussed.


KEY WORDS: Abnormalities - Internal carotid artery - Case reports - Vertebral artery dissection
