A brain aneurysm is the ballooning of a blood vessel in the brain due to a weakening of the wall of the artery. Most brain aneurysms show no symptoms until they are very large, leak blood, or even rupture. However, if the aneurysm is pressing on a nerve, symptoms may occur, including vision impairment and headache. If the aneurysm ruptures it is called a subarachnoid hemorrhage and blood leaks into the space around the brain. This can cause a severe headache, nausea, and drowsiness which may result in a coma. Aneurysms can result from congenital defects, preexisting conditions like high blood pressure and atherosclerosis, and head trauma. Brain aneurysms typically occur at the base of the brain, and either surgical clipping or endovascular coiling is used as a treatment, depending on the patient.
