PMID:  1631768     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A rare case of a dissecting aneurysm of the P3 segment of the right posterior cerebral artery is presented that seems to have occurred in association with mild head injury. The patient was treated surgically because of repeated intramural hemorrhage and enlargement of the aneurysm. Proximal ligation produced thrombosis of the aneurysm without resulting in infarction in the region of the posterior cerebral artery. The mechanisms of the dissection, diagnosis, and treatment are briefly discussed.
