Intracranial aneurysms are a common and potentially devastating disorder of the cerebral circulation. In-tracranial aneurysms may be classified by pathological basis, size, or location. The pathogenesis is not completely understood but is likely multifactorial, combining both a genetic predisposition and environmental factors. Aneurysms may present as a result of hemorrhage and its associated complications (such as seizures, vasospasm, and hydrocephalus), from compression of adjacent structures (mass effect), as cerebral ischemia, or may be discovered incidentally. Diagnosis is based on history and physical examination augmented with imaging techniques such as CT or MRI and cerebral angiography. Treatment of intra-cranial aneurysms endeavors to eliminate the aneur-ysm from the cerebral circulation while ensuring patency of the parent vessel and surrounding perforating vessels.
