Mycotic aneurysm is usually found in the middle cerebral artery associated with infective endocarditis. Previous reports we have identified include only 4 cases of vertebrobasilar aneurysm. We report on a 29-year-old female who had multiple mycotic aneurysms involving both the carotid and vertebrobasilar systems complicated by intracranial hemorrhage with infective endocarditis, in whom staged operations, mitral valve replacement and craniotomies, were successfully performed.
