Many cases of cerebral rete mirabile, a particular disease entity, had been reported and discussed by some authors over the world including Japan, United States, Europe and Korea in these ten years. In spite of variable opinions concerning to its exact pathogenesis and etiology, most authors are in good agreement with the specific findings of carotid angiography. But we couldn't find any reports of cerebral rete mirabile accompanied by similar changes in vertebrobasilar system in the literature. Recently we encountered a case of typical cerebral rete mirabile with fine arborization of posterior cerebral arteries and irregular narrowing of vertebrobasilar arteries. It is our sixth case of cerebral rete mirabile and will be presented with the brief review of literature.
