Intracranial vertebrobasilar dissecting aneurysms (VBDAs) are associated with a greater tendency to rupture and a greater risk of worse outcomes than anterior circulation aneurysms. Spontaneous healing of a VBDA is very rare, and there have been very few case reports of spontaneous healing of an aneurysm. We describe a case of intracranial vertebral artery dissecting aneurysm that healed spontaneously and disappeared completely on follow-up images.
