Abstract

Trauma to the soft palate is a uncommon event during childhood. Stroke following intraoral trauma is also rare, but has been well documented by the current literature as a potentially serious complication. In this article, we report 2 cases of posttraumatic internal carotid artery thrombosis depicted by imaging studies. We discuss pathogenesis, and the literature is reviewed.
