Author(s): Deniz Uzmansel*, Zeliha Kurtoglu, Celal Bagdatoglu, Alev Kara and Altan Yildiz

In a 45-year-old male patient, a congenital anomaly of the intracranial part of the left vertebral artery accompanying an aneurysm of the vertebro-basilar system was encountered.

In the cerebral angiography, hypoplastic left vertebral artery accompanying an aneurysm of the basilar tip was detected.

The aneurysm of the basilar tip was cured via endovascular route. The congenital anomaly discussed on its association with vertigo and aneurysm of basilar tip.
