Abstract

The aneurysms of the internal auditory artery (IAA) situated distal from anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA)-IAA junction, are extremely rare lesions. A case of distal aneurysm of IAA is presented causing subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) and complete ipsilateral deafness. After the neurosurgical treatment the hearing of the patient definitely improved. The literature of distal aneurysms of AICA is reviewed focusing on the clinical features of these malformations, causing cerebello-pontine angle (CPA) symptoms with or without SAH.
