Levodopa-Responsive Hemiparkinsonism Secondary to Cystic Expansion from a Coiled Cerebral Aneurysm

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

An 80-year-old woman with longstanding hemifacial spasm had a 1 cm × 1.5 cm internal carotid artery terminus aneurysm treated with endovascularly delivered bare metal coils. Follow-up imaging revealed an expansile perianeurysmal cyst that coincided with development of contralateral dopa-responsive hemiparkinsonism. This is the first report of perianeurysmal cyst expansion causing levodopa-responsive hemiparkinsonism.
