  • Vipul GuptaEmail author


A 52-year-old female presented with subarachnoid haemorrhage (Hunt and Hess grade II; Fisher grade III). DSA (Fig. 26.1a–c) revealed a fusiform aneurysm of left ICA at the level of PCOM artery with a prominent bulge on ventral aspect of ICA. There was another small ICA aneurysm in the paraclinoidal segment. A third, very small aneurysmal bulge was seen arising from posterior aspect of left ACA.
