Thanks for the query.

AICA is the short form used for Anterior Inferior Cerebellar artery in Neurology. This can compress on the facial-vestibulocochlear nerve complex and cause symptoms related to these nerves. But this is just an assumption. I would like to know some details about your symptoms and the context in which the scan was done to make it clearer.

I thank you again for submitting the query. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
