is a cerebrovascular disorder in which weakness in the wall of a cerebral artery or vein causes a localized dilation or ballooning of the blood vessel.
Common signs and symptoms of a ruptured aneurysm include:
• Sudden, extremely severe headache.
• Nausea and vomiting.
• Stiff neck.
• Blurred or double vision.
• Sensitivity to light.
• A drooping eyelid.
• Loss of consciousness.
Diagnostic tests include:
- Computerized tomography (CT). A CT scan, a specialized X-ray exam, is usually the first test used to determine if you have bleeding in the brain. The test produces images that are 2-D "slices" of the brain.
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). An MRI uses a magnetic field and radio waves to create detailed images of the brain, either 2-D slices or 3-D images.
- Cerebral angiogram. During this procedure, also called a cerebral arteriogram, your doctor inserts a thin, flexible tube (catheter) into a large artery — usually in your groin — and threads it past your heart to the arteries in your brain. A special dye injected into the catheter travels to arteries throughout your brain.
