Abstract

A 37-year-old female presented to our institution with sudden onset of occipital headache with low grade fever, photophobia, projectile vomiting and meningeal signs. Brain CT revealed the presence of a subarachnoid hemorrhage predominantly in the basal cisterns as well as in the Sylvain and interhemispheric fissures, with very minimal dilatation of the lateral ventricles. Computed tomography angiography showed a fusiform aneurysm with bilobulated appearance at the bifurcation of the anterior communicating artery and the proximal A1 segment of the anterior cerebral artery. Successful endovascular coiling with embolization of the aneurysm was performed with good clinical outcome.
