Abstract

Cerebrovascular events during endoscopy are uncommon. Air embolism should be considered in the differential diagnosis of any stroke, particularly if it develops during or after an endoscopic procedure. We report this unusual complication in a woman who had a cerebral artery air embolism during an esophagogastroscopy procedure.
