Abstract

A case of isolated dissecting aneurysm of the posterior cerebral artery responsible for ischemic episode and subarachnoid hemorrhage is reported. Angiogram showed a fusiform dilatation of the P1-P2 segment of the right posterior cerebral artery. The dissecting aneurysm was disappeared spontaneously on follow-up angiogram. It is recommended that, in a subset of neurologically stable patient who represents fusiform dilatation angiographically, angiographic monitoring should be undertaken to assess the tendency for spontaneous resolution before planning of surgical intervention.
