PMID:  1919702     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The pregnant state has an apparently stimulatory effect on the tendency for aneurysms to grow. A patient is reported whose symptomatic aneurysm was clipped during pregnancy. The small amount of residual aneurysm underwent remarkable continued growth during the last trimester of the pregnancy. The implications for management of such cases are discussed.
