Where is a lacunar infarct?

A quarter of all ischaemic strokes (a fifth of all strokes) are lacunar type. Lacunar infarcts are small infarcts (2–20 mm in diameter) in the deep cerebral white matter, basal ganglia, or pons, presumed to result from the occlusion of a single small perforating artery supplying the subcortical areas of the brain.
