Although only 5% of patients with bacterial endocarditis suffer intracranial haemorrhages and only a small proportion will be due to aneurysms [57], diagnosis of the latter requires careful consideration of additional surgical treatment because of the high mortality associated with rupture [20]. Resolution of infectious aneurysms on antibiotic treatment is well recognised, although they have been reported to occur even aftet successful treatment of endocarditis [9]. When diagnosed without rupture, appropriate antibiotic treatment is imperative with frequent interval angiography to assess response if conservative management is pursued.
