Abstract

A 69-year-old female suffered from sudden onset of severe headache. Computed tomography showed subarachnoid hemorrhage primarily located in the posterior fossa. Initial angiography demonstrated a fenestration of the vertebral artery and an extracranial origin of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery. However, no bleeding points could be clearly detected. The operative findings revealed a massive clot in subarachnoid space, but no bleeding point. Serial angiography demonstrated dissection in one of the limbs of the fenestrated vertebral artery on the 25th day after the onset. On the 100th day, the lesion was spontaneously occluded. The patient is presently doing well at 8 years after surgery.
