Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Aneurysms of the petrosal segment of the internal carotid artery are rare in children and are usually found secondary to trauma and infection or can have a congenital origin. Management includes endovascular therapy, surgery, and in rare cases observation.

DISCUSSION:

Here, we report our experience with a giant petrous internal carotid artery aneurysm in a 16-year-old boy successfully managed endovascularly by parent artery occlusion.
