A non-bifurcating cervical carotid artery is a rare anomaly in the population. Radiologic diagnosis of pathologies seen together with this anomaly can be challenging. Despite not being diagnostic all the time, digital subtraction angiography is accepted as the gold standard method for the diagnosis of dissection. We present a case of a non-bifurcating cervical carotid artery and concomitant dissection, which presented to the hospital with trauma and ischemic findings.
