Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic disease with multiple pathologies that can affect every organ system of the body including central nervous system. Intracerebral aneurysms and subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) are one of comparatively rarer manifestations of central nervous system SLE. Here we present a case of known SLE complicated by the rupture of intra cerebral aneurysm at basilar artery tip which was successfully treated with endovascular coiling.
