A rare case of bilateral ophthalmic segment "kissing" aneurysms is reported. A 32-year-old man presented with nasal bleeding and headaches. Cerebral angiography demonstrated bilateral internal carotid-ophthalmic aneurysms. Both aneurysms were treated in the same procedure because of uncertainty over which aneurysm had bled. The left aneurysm was coiled intrasaccularly, the right one was treated by parent artery occlusion. Surgery for kissing aneurysms has been recognized as hazardous and challenging. We emphasize that the endovascular technique described is reasonable.

    Background: A2 aneurysms are rare with a reported incidence of <1% of the intracranial aneurysms. These aneurysms are located between the anterior communicating artery and genu of the corpus callosum. Fusiform aneurysms in this location are even rarer and we present one such case of fusiform A2...
