Edematous left corpus striatum (left caudate head and lentiform nuclei, including part of the anterior limb of the left internal capsule and sparing globus pallidus) with low T1, high T2 and FLAIR signal and evident diffusion restriction. Foci of internal SWI blooming are noted reflecting hemorrhagic changes.
Radiological features are in favor of acute infarction along the territory of left recurrent artery of Huebner.
