Dolichoectasia is an angiopathy characterized by dilatation, elongation, and tortuosity of the brain arteries. It most frequently involves the vertebral and basilar arteries; involvement of both the vertebrobasilar and carotid systems is rare. We present a patient with fatal dolichoectasia involving both the vertebrobasilar and carotid artery systems.
