Epilepsy is rare and difficult to ascertain as presenting symptom in intracranial aneurysms. Giant intracranial aneurysms (size over 2.5 cm), which represent about 5% of all diagnosed aneurysms, may on the other hand, have as only symptom epilepsia. This report illustrates and discusses 4 (20%) among 20 giant intracranial aneurysms observed at the Neurosurgery Institute of the University of Milan, whose presenting symptom was some kind of epileptic fit.
