Abstract


Coarctation of the aorta (CoA) is one of the common congenital cardiovascular diseases. CoA can be diagnosed over a wide range of ages, with varying degrees of severity, and in various presentations. The most common presenting age of CoA is 3 - 6 months with only a small proportion of adolescents and adults diagnosed with primary aortic coarctation of the aorta. Intracranial aneurysms that undergo spontaneous rupture causing subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) are rare in young patients with CoA. We report a 22-year-old young female successfully underwent right pterional craniotomy, clipping of aneurysm and balloon dilatation of coarctation of the aorta.
