Introduction: The present case study reports an intraparenchymal hemorrhage from a ruptured basilar tip aneurysm without subarachnoid hemorrhage.
Case Report: A 57-year-old male presented with intraparenchymal hemorrhage from a ruptured basilar tip aneurysm without subarachnoid hemorrhage. The patient had successful endovascular embolization of his ruptured cerebral aneurysm 9 years previously.
Discussion: Ruptured cerebral aneurysms without subarachnoid hemorrhage are extremely rare. Cerebral angiogram for atypical presentation of patients with intracranial hemorrhages should be considered. In patients with known cerebral aneurysms who present with an intracranial hemorrhage, rupture of that aneurysm or a de novo aneurysm must be ruled out.
