Abstract

A 65-year-old woman presented to the emergency department with sudden onset of left-sided weakness, headache and vomiting. A cerebral CT showed an acute intracerebral haemorrhage involving the right caudate nucleus and lentiform nucleus with mild midline shift and intraventricular extension. CT angiography did not reveal aneurysm or other vascular anomaly. Conventional cerebral angiography demonstrated a 3 mm right medial lenticulostriate branch aneurysm, arising from the right anterior cerebral artery (ACA). Endovascular treatment was performed from the left internal carotid via the anterior communicating artery into the right ACA. Complete occlusion was achieved with injection of N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate. The patient had neurological rehabilitation during hospitalisation followed by outpatient physical therapy. Two years later, clinical follow-up demonstrated excellent recovery.
