Basilar artery occlusion is rare, accounting for approximately 1% of ischemic strokes characterized by pons and cerebellum infarction. Symptoms range from paresthesia and oculomotor symptoms to locked-in syndrome. Here, we report a rare case of basilar artery infarction in a 79-year-old female patient who presented with a right-sided lower motor neuron-type facial nerve palsy. This case is being reported to highlight the neuroimaging and clinical features of this condition.
