Abstract

The association of intracranial aneurysms with meningiomas is rare. We report the first case of a 52-year-old woman in which a ruptured aneurysm was encased within a meningioma and associated with a contralateral extradural aneurysm. A PubMed search of literature using the search words "aneurysm" and "meningioma," was performed in order to compile previously reported cases, Only 5 cases reported to date of an aneurysm within a meningioma. Although a rare occurrence, this case suggests the possibility of asymptomatic ICA aneurysms located within sphenoid wing meningiomas. Recognition of this possibility may be prudent in order to avoid inadvertent vascular complications during meningioma resection.
