We report the case of a patient with an unruptured internal carotid artery (ICA) aneurysm treated with bare platinum coils. The patient had seizures 1 month after treatment.

After aneurysm coiling, perianeurysmal edema is an unusual complication that can be asymptomatic or cause symptoms depending on its location. Epilepsy as a clinical presentation of perianeurysmal edema has not previously been reported. Literature about post-embolization perianeurysmal edema is reviewed.Le texte complet de cet article est disponible en PDF.
