Stroke is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity. Aortic dissection is a highly mortal medical condition without treatment as well. Aortic dissection can present with different clinical signs and symptoms, one of which is stroke. Treatments of ischemic stroke and aortic dissection are different from each other. Because of that, early diagnosis and treatment of ischemic stroke due to aortic dissection is important. In this case, we aimed to explain a young male patient with a large ischemic stroke as a result of painless dissection and thrombus of the carotid arteries and painless dissection of the ascending and descending aorta, arcus aorta, and iliac artery.

Keywords: Aortic dissection, carotid thrombosis, computed tomography angiography, ischemic stroke.
