Abstract

A patient with signs of brainstem compression and hydrocephalus is reported. The clinical picture suggested a posterior fossa neoplasm. Computed tomography, however, proved highly accurate in making the diagnosis of a giant, partially thrombosed vertebrobasilar aneurysm. The radiographic appearance of this entity is summarized and pathologic correlation is offered.
