Two patients who developed what appeared to be a granulomatous reaction following muslin wrapping of unclipped aneurysms are reported. They presented with cranial nerve palsies and at operation were found to have an abscess around the wrapped aneurysms. In one of these two patients Staphylococcus epidemidis was isolated from the pus. This, together with further evidence from reported cases in the literature, would suggest that infection may play an additional role at least in some cases in the onset of a foreign-body granulomatous reaction seen following wrapping of aneurysms.
