Intra-cranial mycotic aneurysms due to an infective process elsewhere in the body constitute an uncommon cause of intra-cranial hemorrhage. The condition carries a grave prognosis. Mycotic aneurysms secondary to infective endocarditis (IE) rarely occur in children. This communication describes a seven-year-old girl who presented with fever and neurological abnormalities. She was diagnosed to have a mycotic aneurysm secondary to IE. Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) confirmed the diagnosis, delineated anatomical details and later detected the complete resolution of the aneurysm following conservative management with intravenous antimicrobial agents.
