Abstract

The authors report an extremely rare case of a ruptured saccular aneurysm of the right posterior inferior cerebellar artery PICA associated with hypoplasia of bilateral internal carotid arteries ICAs and the right vertebral artery VA. The aneurysm was successfully treated by clipping of the aneurysm itself using a lateral suboccipital approach. The aetiology of hypoplastic ICAs and right VA is uncertain, but the associated distal aneurysm from the right PICA appears to have developed most likely due to a coexistent congenital vessel wall anomaly of the cerebral arterial structure.
