Spontaneous middle cerebral arterial dissection (MCAD) is a rare cause of ischemic stroke. We report two cases of isolated spontaneous MCAD causing ischemic stroke. MCAD should be considered when a young patient has a middle cerebral artery territory infarct with stenosis at the origin of the middle cerebral artery. We discuss noninvasive radiological techniques for the diagnosis of MCAD.
