Author information

Serviço de Neurocirurgia, Hospital Itamaraty, and Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil.


A case of an intracranial arterial aneurysm at internal carotid bifurcation in a 10-year-old girl is described with the special features of cerebral aneurysm which occur in children, comparing with the adults. We alert for the necessity of carefully operative technique in order to avoid damage and intraoperative rupture of the aneurysm due to the very thin vessel wall that this population can develop. Our recommendation is early surgery in these patients.
