The treatment of a ruptured fusiform distal anterior temporal artery aneurysm is a challenge for the stroke physician, however surgical closure and coil endovascular intervention are options. A total blockage can result in memory problems as well as object-related questions. We'd like to provide the clinical example of a 56-year-old woman with many underlying medical illnesses who was admitted to the hospital with a grade 7/10 headache and a Glasgow score of 15, but no focal neurological deficits, and was diagnosed with a ruptured distal temporal artery aneurysm. The aneurysm is positioned in the distal region, making endovascular intervention difficult to perform. As a result, we used an endovascular approach to repair with bioglue. When a patient develops fusiform aneurysms of the distal temporal artery, our findings provide an additional therapy option.
