A case of unruptured bilateral large carotid-ophthalmic aneurysms, which appear to be adjoining and "kissing" each other when visualized by three-dimensional computed tomographic angiography (3-D CTA), is reported. Although bilateral carotid-ophthalmic aneurysms are not rare, bilateral large ones are quite rare, and direct imaging of "kissing aneurysms" of this portion has not been reported. Since 3-D CTA is becoming a useful tool for the diagnosis of cerebral aneurysms, we propose that these and similar bilateral large carotid-ophthalmic aneurysms are good candidates for the term "kissing aneurysms".
