Abstract

A 62-year-old man presented with a 2-month history of right occipito-parietal headache and worsening ipsilateral ptosis. CT scan and cerebral angiography revealed a large fusiform aneurysm of the P2 segment of the right posterior cerebral artery (PCA). The aneurysm was successfully trapped and subsequently excised via sub temporal approach leaving no additional neurological deficits to our patient.
