Peripheral anterior inferior cerebellar artery aneurysms

Abstract

Two cases of peripheral anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA) aneurysms are reported. The first case was a 60-year-old man who showed frequent attacks of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and hearing disturbance. His aneurysm was obliterated by trapping the AICA and his neurologic status was unchanged compared with preoperatively. The second case had SAH without cranial nerve involvement; this aneurysm was obliterated by neck clipping. He was discharged without neurologic deficit. Peripheral AICA aneurysm has already been reported in 48 cases including arteriovenous malformation-associated cases. This aneurysm may show cranial nerve involvement (seventh and eighth) without SAH as in the case of internal carotid-posterior communicating artery aneurysms. We review the clinical signs of these cases and discuss them from the point of view of anatomic variations of the AICA and internal auditory artery.
