Bottom Line: An ad hoc coil embolization was performed with angiographic success.Clinical examination revealed no neurological deficits and the patient was rated 0 in mRS (modified Rankin Scale).In experienced departments of interventional neuroradiology the endovascular treatment should be the treatment of choice.

ABSTRACT

Background: The occurence of aneurysms in young patients, under 18 years of age, is estimated at 0.5-2% of all diagnosed aneurysms.

Case report: We reported on a case of a 16-year-old patient with subarachnoid hemorrhage diagnosed due to a ruptured cerebral vessel aneurysm. The angio-CT revealed an aneurysm of the middle cerebral artery, in its distal branch. An ad hoc coil embolization was performed with angiographic success. After 6 months following the ictus, the patient underwent a control angiography which confirmed total occlusion of the aneurysm with no residual inflow. Clinical examination revealed no neurological deficits and the patient was rated 0 in mRS (modified Rankin Scale).

Conclusions: In experienced departments of interventional neuroradiology the endovascular treatment should be the treatment of choice.
