Mechanism of acute deterioration of the neurological status following rapid and massive intraluminal thrombosis in case of a giant intracavernous carotid artery aneurysm: demonstration by MR imaging.

Abstract

A case is reported of a thrombosed giant aneurysm of the intracavernous carotid artery. Transient neurological deterioration was attributable to the acute swelling of the aneurysmal mass after rapid and massive intraluminal thrombosis. Characteristics on the magnetic resonance imaging of this case are reported and discussed.
