Isolated Basilar Artery Dissection (BAD) is a rare cause of ischemic stroke. Sexual intercourse may result in dissection through physiological stress on the body causing an abrupt elevation in blood pressure and shearing force against the vessel wall. Since the posterior vascular system feeds vital areas such as the Pons, respiratory center, and motor pathways, early recognition of vascular pathologies involving these areas is vital. Here in we report the imaging findings of a young male patient admitted to the emergency department with sudden onset of neurological disorders due to BAD developed during orgasm.
