RESUMO

Os autores apresentam um caso, demonstrado angiograficamente, de achado incidental de artéria trigeminal primitiva persistente associada com aneurisma do polígono de Willis no território da artéria cerebral média. A propósito, a literatura é revisada e a embriologia envolvida relatada.

Palavaras-chave: artéria trigeminal persistente, aneurisma cerebral, embriologia.


ABSTRACT

The authors report a case of persistent primitive trigeminal artery angiographically demonstrated as an incidental finding. The persistent primitive trigeminal artery was associated with an aneurysm arising from the circle of Willis in the middle cerebral artery territory. The literature is reviewed and the embryology involved is related.

Key words: persistent trigeminal artery, cerebral aneurysm, embriology.
