Abstract

A case of the de novo formation of an aneurysm in a young woman is presented. At age 13 years, she had a spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage. Cerebral angiography showed an aneurysm of the bifurcation of the left internal carotid artery and a small aneurysm of the left anterior choroidal artery. At surgery, the aneurysm of the internal carotid artery was clipped, and the aneurysm of the left anterior choroidal artery was wrapped with muslin. Thirteen years later, the patient had another subarachnoid hemorrhage. Cerebral arteriography showed four aneurysms that had developed at previously angiographically normal sites. This case suggests that young patients with aneurysms might benefit from follow-up angiography in search of late aneurysm formation.
