Familial intracranial aneurysms. Case report

J Neurosurg. 1982 Sep;57(3):416-7. doi: 10.3171/jns.1982.57.3.0416.


A case with two intracranial aneurysms is presented. The situation is unique because the patient was one of 13 siblings, seven of whom are now known to have harbored such aneurysms. The patient, now deceased from rupture of her aneurysm, was one of the two siblings who had previously refused elective angiography.
