OBJECTIVE To highlight the possible association of intracranial aneurysm with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PATIENT To our knowledge, this association has been reported only twice in the medical literature. We herein report the case of a 21-year-old man with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease, presenting with subarachnoid hemorrhage secondary to a ruptured intracranial aneurysm, at our institution. RESULTS In the presence of only 3 cases in the medical literature, one might conclude they are a simple coincidence. However, should this association exist, such as with the dominant form, then the neurologic prognosis and even the life of young patients may be at stake. CONCLUSIONS Given the devastating consequences of intracranial bleeding in young patients, early neurologic screening may be warranted.
