Abstract

A 21-year-old male presented with headache for 5 years and recent episodes of short-lasting right-sided weakness. MRI was suggestive of acute lacunar infarct in the right medulla along with partly thrombosed fusiform proximal basilar artery aneurysm (Fig. 27.1a). DSA showed a long-segment, fusiform basilar artery aneurysm (Fig. 27.1b).
