Artery of Percheron occlusion is a rare cause of ischaemic stroke characterized by bilateral thalamus infarction. Presentation is varied and non-specific, with the most frequent manifestations being altered level of consciousness, hypersomnolence or altered oculomotor movements. We describe the case of a 37-year-old man hospitalized for hypersomnia and hypomnesia with 3 days of evolution, who was diagnosed with a bilateral thalamus stroke due to artery of Percheron occlusion.
