Cerebral mycotic aneurysm in a child with Down's syndrome: a unique association.

Abstract

Mycotic aneurysms are rare complications in patients with infective endocarditis, particularly in the pediatric population. We report a case of mycotic aneurysm of the middle cerebral artery complicating bacterial endocarditis in a child with Down's syndrome. The patient was successfully treated medically without the need for surgical intervention.
