Abstract
The intracranial mycotic aneurysms are a rare complication in patients with infective endocarditis, and the management of the aneurysm is controversial. We presented a case of a 50-year-old woman who had infective endocarditis, complicated by an intracranial mycotic aneurysm of distal branch of the right anterior cerebral artery. Endovascular treatment using cyanoacrylate led to a successful result.
Key Words: Endocarditis; Aneurysm, Cerebral; Aneurysm, Mycotic; Embolization, Therapeutic; Embolization, Endovascular
