Optimal treatment for ruptured dissecting basilar artery aneurysms in patients presenting with SAH is endovascular method using stent placement and coil embolization. We report a case (52-year-old woman) of ruptured dissecting aneurysm of the basilar artery which was treated with stent placement and coil embolization.
