The authors experienced 2 cases of bacterial intracranial aneurysm, the mortality of which has been reported to by very high and the management of which is controversial. Some authors have recommended observation with serial angiography during antimicrobial therapy and surgery for aneurysms that enlarge or remain patent. Others have argued for promt surgical removal. Bothof our patients had multiple aneurysms and were treated with appropriate, high-dose antibiotics, but intracerebral homorrhage(ICH) occurred during antibiotiecs treatment in both cases and they underwnet emergent operation, but both died.
