Abstract

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'.
