Abstract Previous descriptions of the course and anatomic relationships of the anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA), as visualized in the lateral projection, have not been found by the authors. Dissection and radiography of 32 injected human cerebella show that AICA and its major branches define the position of the pontomedullary sulcus; supra-olivary fossette; 5th-11th cranial nerves; brachium pontis; flocculus; great horizontal fissure; posterolateral fissure; superior semilunar lobule; inferior semilunar lobule; biventral lobule; foramen of Luschka; and the choroid plexus of the lateral recess of the 4th ventricle. With magnification and high-quality subtraction, AICA and its associated structures may be identified in the lateral projection in the large majority of patients.
