An intracranial mycotic aneurysm developed in a 35-year-old woman with endocarditis, caused by Cardiobacterium hominis, around a prosthetic valve. This type of aneurysm is a rare, life-threatening entity, and C. hominis is extremely uncommon as the causative agent. The pathogenesis and monitoring of intracranial mycotic aneurysm are discussed.
