Autopsy findings are described of an atypical aneurysm of a large cerebral artery in a young child. The lesion is believed to have been an infective (mycotic) aneurysm. Antibiotics were administered at the time of the first leakage which had been thought to be due to a sinus infection. The sac wall exhibited a subacute pleomorphic inflammatory cell response indicative of a resolving infective aneurysm, and appearance that is likely to be encountered more often in the future.
