BACKGROUND A familial occurrence of intracranial aneurysms is defined by the presence of such aneurysms in two or more first to third-degree family members. Families with two affected members may represent accidental aggregation. Other families show a frequency compatible with an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance. A genetic basis is also suggested by(More)
This report describes three individuals belonging to one family, who were affected with ruptured intracranial aneurysms (IAs) at a rather young age, 4, 15 and 23 years respectively. Familial IAs at this young age have not been described before. The evidence for a developmental, eventually inherited origin of familial IA in childhood is discussed with(More)
The screening of asymptomatic individuals in families with intracranial aneurysms has been advocated to detect unruptured aneurysms before a major hemorrhage occurs. We report a 39-year-old male member of a large Dutch family, with a documented history of intracranial aneurysms, who suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage 2 years after cerebral digital(More)
Clinical decision analysis is applied to the treatment decisions for four patients with unruptured familial aneurysms. The surgical treatment was uneventful in all patients except one with mild mixed aphasia and facial weakness postoperatively; these deficits disappeared in less than 2 years. In the decision analysis, discounted Quality Adjusted Life Years(More)
The familial occurrence of intracranial aneurysms and the possible relationship with connective tissue disease are discussed. We studied a large family in which seven members presented with aneurysms. Another family member presented with a subarachnoidal hemorrhage. Two other family members each presented with Marfan's syndrome and an unclassified multiple(More)
This case report describes a nosocomial vancomycin-sensitive Enterococcus faecium meningitis with poor response to vancomycin. E. faecium infections continue to represent a therapeutic challenge in Europe, even in countries where vancomycin resistance is still rare. In the case of vancomycin-sensitive E. faecium meningitis, intravenous chloramphenicol(More)
