ABSTRACT
Three dimensional computed tomographic angiography is a rapid and minimally invasive method of detecting intracranial aneurysms, however, there are some limitation to identify the associated cerebrovascular lesions. We report a case of ruptured dorsal wall aneurysm of internal carotid artery in a 50-year-old man who had underlying stenosis of cervical internal carotid artery, which was overlooked due to lesion outside the scan field of view.
Key Words: Computed tomographic angiography; Aneurysm; Stenosis; Internal carotid artery
