Three cases of persistent trigeminal artery (PTA) presenting with intracranial hemorrhage are reported. Two of the cases presented with intracranial hemorrhage due to ruptured aneurysms. One out of these two presented with left basal ganglia/subinsular region bleed due to a ruptured lenticulostriate artery aneurysm in a 17-year old adolescent. The third patient presented with benign intracranial hemorrhage in the posterior fossa. The unusual presentations in these patients are highlighted after discussing the pertinent literature and significance of persistent trigeminal artery.
