Abstract

The rupture of an intracranial aneurysm is rare during pregnancy and exceptional during delivery. When it occurs, the prognosis of two lives is engaged. We are reporting a case of a 41-year-old patient presenting with a subarachnoid hemorrhage during labor. After extraction of healthy baby through cesarian section, radiological investigations permitted to diagnose a ruptured right carotid-ophthalmic aneurysm. The patient benefited from a selective aneurysm’s exclusion by occlusion using Guglielmi detachable coils through an endovascular approach using catheterization. The immediate outcome was favorable.
