Pericallosal artery

Dr Frank Gaillard et al.

The pericallosal artery is the continuation of the anterior cerebral artery (ACA) and is named after the origin of the callosomarginal artery. As it courses over the superior surface of the corpus callosum (CC) in the pericallosal cistern, it gives off many small branches to the CC, forming the pericallosal moustache.
