Peñarrocha M, Peñarrocha MA, Soler F, Bagán JV. Trigeminal neuralgia associated to basilar artery dolichoestasia. Medicina Oral. 2001;6:36-9.
A case of trigeminal neuralgia attributed to basilar artery dolichoectasia is described. Underlying vascular malformations and tumors of the cerebellopontine angle can be detected in patients with trigeminal neuralgia by means of noninvasive techniques such as computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging; such diagnostic tools are therefore indicated in patients with trigeminal neuralgia to discard possible central nervous disorders.
