Therapeutic route and the time window for systemic thrombolysis in acute settings remain uncertain. We describe a case of severe acute ischemic stroke due to vertebrobasilar thrombosis who achieved rapid arterial recanalization and remarkable clinical recovery during ultrasound enhanced intravenous thrombolysis, initiated at 4.5 hours after the symptom-onset. We discuss some important issues, related to the final diagnosis, that arise due to the complete clinical recovery, rapid arterial recanalization and absence of any acute infarction on subsequent neuroimaging. © 2010 by the American Society of Neuroimaging.||Source Title:||Journal of Neuroimaging||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/125356||ISSN:||10512284||DOI:||10.1111/j.1552-6569.2010.00509.x|
