✓ Six patients with intracranial mycotic aneurysms of extravascular origin are reported. Four had aneurysms of the intracavernous portion of the internal carotid artery associated with thrombophlebitis of the cavernous sinus, and two had aneurysms of the cerebral arteries associated with meningitis. An aneurysm of this type may rupture, producing subarachnoid hemorrhage, or it may become thrombosed and decrease in size or spontaneously disappear. In some patients it may persist and develop calcification in the wall.
