Abstract

We describe a 15-month-old girl who presented with an acute hemiplegia. The sequence of events appears to have been clinically silent subarachnoid hemorrhage, vasospasm, infarction and a second lethal hemorrhage 3 months later. The old infarction was seen on computed tomography during her second illness. Autopsy confirmed the presence of a recent rupture of an intracranial aneurysm and old hemorrhage. In addition there was an unusual fibroblastic proliferation in the aneurysm wall. This case demonstrates that clinically silent subarachnoid hemorrhage, vasospasm and infarction can occur as complications of aneurysms, even in very young children.
