A 10-year-old child with transposition of the great arteries had multiple intracranial aneurysms. The child presented with pyogenic meningitis, and the investigations incidentally revealed numerous aneurysms involving both anterior and posterior circulation arteries. Angiography also revealed multiple fistulae between the internal and external carotid arteries. The child is under observation. The pathogenesis and management strategy of multiple intracranial aneurysms are discussed and the relevant literature is briefly reviewed.
