Aneurysms of the A1 segment of the anterior cerebral artery (ACA) are rare. We described the first documented endovascular treatment of an Al portion dissecting aneurysm by parent artery occlusion. A 43-year-old man patient presented with subarachnoid hemorrhage. Cerebral angiography demonstrated a dissecting aneurysm of the left anterior cerebral artery (ACA) at A1 portion. Because of the dissecting nature of the A1 portion aneurysm, a 2.5x15-mm Neuroform stent was placed in the left A1 portion. However, regrowth of the aneurysm was found on the three month follow-up angiogram, so the aneurysm and the left Al portion of ACA were occluded completely.
