The risk associated with arterial thromboembolism (ATE) increases with the presence of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). We are reporting a case of transient ischemic attack (TIA) due to stenosis of the carotid and brachiocephalic arteries following long-term treatment with sorafenib for renal cell carcinoma (RCC). The patient is a non-smoker with no known comorbidities and had no history of cardiovascular disease. The patient underwent a right endarterectomy with angioplasty, aortic arch, and brachiocephalic artery angiogram with a stent placed in the brachiocephalic artery.
