Abstract

Ruptured anterior communicating artery aneurysm presenting with complete third nerve palsy is genuinely rare. We herein report one such case resulting from an interpeduncular haematoma. Three months after the coiling, the patient had fully recovered. This case adds a new branch to the aetiology-to-prognostic decision-making tree of third nerve palsies.
