The purpose of this article is to extensively illustrate pathologically and clinically proven cases of intracranial vascular lesions and variants accumulated at a tertiary referral center. These are organized by normal anatomy and variants, arterial lesions, and venous lesions. High-quality computed tomography, computed tomographic angiography, magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic resonance angiography, 3D reconstruction, and angiographic figures illustrate the findings and complement a succinct review of this category of disease. Some cases are accompanied by histopathologic correlation. The reader of this article will gain or refresh information about intracranial vascular lesions and variants for clinical practice and for preparation for certifying examinations and clinical practice. The text and figures aid recognition of these entities and emphasize anatomy, clinical context, and differential diagnosis. These can aid the radiologist in arriving at the appropriate diagnosis.
