Brain MRI and MRA. Seven days after birth (A&B&C). Diffusion-weighted (A) and apparent diffusion coefficient (B) MRI, respectively revealed hyperintense and hypointense signals in the left hemisphere, indicating complete left middle cerebral artery (MCA) infarction. C MRA showed absent flow signal in the expected location of the left internal carotid artery (ICA) and MCA due to occlusion (red solid and dotted arrowheads indicate expected course of left ICA and MCA as compared to red solid and dotted arrows that indicate course of right ICA and MCA). Thirty days after birth (D&E&F). Diffusion-weighted (D) and apparent diffusion coefficient (E) MRI showed a slightly hypointense and a hyperintense signal in the left MCA territory, respectively. F MRA showed reperfusion of the left ICA and MCA, and the MCA was obviously stenotic with fewer branches
