A 38 years old male presented with a history of sudden onset difficulty in walking and giddiness. His
examination revealed cerebellar signs on the left side and absent brachial and radial pulses in the left
hand. CT scan showed an infarct in left cerebellar hemisphere (Fig. 1). MR angio showed retrograde
filling of left vertebral artery (Fig. 2). A conventional angiogram revealed total blockage of left subclavian
artery (Fig. 3) thereby confirming the diagnosis of subclavian steal. Patient was treated with surgery
