Raymond Céstan syndrome, also known as Céstan–Chenais syndrome or upper dorsal pontine syndrome, is caused by blockage of the long circumferential branches of the basilar artery.[1] It was described by Étienne Jacques Marie Raymond Céstan and Louis Jean Chenais.[2] Along with other related syndromes such as Millard-Gubler syndrome, Foville's syndrome, and Weber's syndrome, the description was instrumental in establishing important principles in brain-stem localization.[3]
