While multiple intracranial arterial aneurysms occur in 26.4% of patients with aneurysms, in our practice bilateral mirror-like aneurysms are encountered in 9.4% of patients. Multiple mirror aneurysms in the same patient are exceedingly rare. We report a case of mirror-like middle cerebral artery aneurysms associated with mirror-like posterior inferior(More)
INTRODUCTION Sinus pericranii (SP) is a rare, usually asymptomatic condition characterized by a large communication between the intra- and the extracranial venous drainage pathways in which blood may circulate bidirectionally through dilated veins of the skull. We describe our diagnostic and therapeutic experience with SP, with a special focus on the(More)
BACKGROUND We describe two previously unreported cases with complete or incomplete expression of PHACES syndrome, a rare congenital syndromal pediatric disorder, which is characterized by posterior cranial fossa malformations, large facial hemangiomas, arterial anomalies, coarctation of the aorta and cardiac defects, abnormalities of the eye, sternal and(More)
Basilar artery "fenestration" is the result of a failed fusion of the bilateral longitudinal neural arteries and can be associated with a saccular aneurysm, which typically arises at the proximal juncture of the unfused segment. "Kissing" aneurysms at this site, i.e. two aneurysms arising from the proximal junction of the unfused segment of the basilar(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare computed tomography (CT) with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for the presumptive diagnosis and localization of acute and subacute low-grade subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). METHODS We consecutively enrolled 45 patients clinically suspected of low-grade SAH, comparing them with a control group. We obtained axial nonenhanced CT scans(More)
SUMMARY Within the group of giant and large aneurysms the subgroup of the so-called "partially thrombosed" aneurysms can be differentiated according to clinical and neuroimaging findings. The present study was carried out to determine the site of bleeding of these aneurysms and what implications concerning their pathomechanism can be drawn from these(More)
