OBJECTIVE: To review the management of aneurysms arising at the origin of a duplicated middle cerebral artery (DMCA) which is an extremely rare entity. METHODOLOGY: We present our 4 cases with ICA-DMCA aneurysms and review 24 previously published cases. RESULTS: Out of the 28 aneurysms 17 were ruptured and 11 unruptured. The aneurysms were equally distributed on the right and left sides and were small in size≤6mm except for two which were of medium size. All were treated surgically except for two very small ones which have been followed-up conservatively for 9 years. CONCLUSION: Although all previously published clinical cases of ICA-DMCA aneurysms were treated surgically, in very small unruptured ones conservative follow-up is a viable option.
