We are recording the first reported case of a 20-year-old man with an intracerebral haemorrhage due to a ruptured aneurysm, which arose from a penetrating artery of the distal middle cerebral artery (MCA; M4 segment). Excision of the aneurysm was successfully achieved via a right pterional approach. The follow-up angiogram demonstrated filling of the parent vessel and no residual aneurysm. This report illustrates the angiographical finding of a penetrating artery aneurysm of the distal MCA and summarizes the previous reports to discuss their pathological and clinical characteristics.
