ABSTRACT
The incidence of intracranial aneurysms in childhood is rare, especially in infancy. We report a case of a 45-day-old girl who presented with seizure due to a ruptured large saccular aneurysm of the middle cerebral artery(MCA) with subsequent subarachnoid, intracerebral and intraventricular hemorrhage. The baby has enjoyed an excellent clinical outcome after surgical management. The clinical features of the case and review of the literature are presented.
Key Words: Intracranial aneurysm; Infancy; Subarachnoid hemorrhage
