A saccular aneurysm at the basilar artery bifurcation associated with a persistent primitive hypoglossal artery (PPHA) was successfully treated by endovascular occlusion with Guglielmi detachable coils. As both vertebral arteries were aplasitc, a microcatheter was advanced via PPHA. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report describing the treatment of a basilar top aneurysm through the PPHA.
