Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A ruptured giant aneurysm of the azygos anterior cerebral artery (ACA) associated with an acute subdural hematoma (SDH) occurred in a 67-year-old male with two episodes of sudden severe headache and transient loss of consciousness. Neurologically, he had mild weakness of the left lower extremity. Computed tomography showed an elliptical heterogeneous hyperdense mass in the interhemispheric fissure in front of the corpus callosum and an acute SDH on the right. Angiography disclosed a giant aneurysm (2.8 x 2.0 cm) at the distal end of the azygos ACA. Removal of the SDH and aneurysmal neck clipping achieved a good outcome. Successive small bleedings may allow the aneurysmal dome to develop adhesions to the arachnoid membrane, and the final rupture will occur into the subdural space, resulting in a SDH.
