Cerebral Aneurysm


CSP: congenital or acquired abnormal outpouching of an intracranial blood vessel wall; saccular (berry) aneurysms are the most common variant, and tend to form at arterial branch points near the base of the brain; rupture results in subarachnoid hemorrhage or intracranial hemorrhages; giant aneurysms (>2.5 cm in diameter) may compress adjacent structures, including the oculomotor nerve.
