Abstract
A 50-year-old male presented with an extremely rare dorsal wall aneurysm of the internal carotid artery manifesting as intracerebral hemorrhage. Computed tomography demonstrated intracerebral hemorrhage on the frontal base. Magnetic resonance imaging clearly showed the hemorrhage was related to an aneurysm of the internal carotid artery. Cerebral angiography disclosed an elongated aneurysm of the dorsal wall of the internal carotid artery. The aneurysm was packed as fully as possible with Guglielmi detachable coils to achieve complete obliteration. The patient was discharged without neurological deficits. Dorsal internal carotid artery aneurysms have a high risk of premature rupture due to their unusual shape and position, adhesion to the brain tissue, and fragile neck. Direct clipping requires careful brain retraction, necessary exposure of the aneurysm, and gentle neck manipulation. Endovascular treatment is an alternative method for obliteration of the aneurysmal sac.
