A 51-year-old hypertensive man presented with subarachnoid haemorrhage. He had a past history of cerebellar infarction due to occlusion of the right posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) 4 years earlier. Digital subtraction angiography showed a saccular aneurysm above an arterial loop extending from the vertebral artery to the distal part of the PICA, reminiscent of peripheral PICA branches. We performed aneurysmal neck clipping with excellent outcome. Aneurysms at anastomotic arteries are extremely rare and can result from increased haemodynamic stress. We report the first case of a ruptured aneurysm at an anastomotic artery in the posterior circulation territory.
