Abstract

A case of enlarged infundibular dilatation diagnosed by vertebral angiograms with carotid compression was reported. A 57-year-old woman suffered from headache. She underwent MRA which revealed left internal carotid artery aneurysm. Left common carotid angiograms suggested a left saccular internal carotid artery aneurysm (4 mm x 6 mm) without a posterior communicating artery. However, it was confirmed to be an enlarged infundibular dilatation on left vertebral angiograms with carotid compression. It was confirmed at operation microscopically and neuroendoscopically, and the dilatation was treated by coating. When carotid angiograms reveal no posterior communicating artery, it is difficult to differentiate the origin of posterior communicating artery from internal carotid artery-posterior communicating artery junction aneurysms. Vertebral angiograms with carotid compression is useful for the differentiation for the exact diagnosis.
