    MRI result of young son after death of 15 year old son from suspected cerebal aneurys

    Have just spoken to the coroner office about my 12 years son MRI result;

    Comment: There is a probable proximal basilar artery fenestration. This vascular variant can be associated with the development of a saccular aneurysm. No aneurysm is identified (greater than 3mm in size). No other significant intracranial abnormality has been demonstrated.

    To say they were very interested is an understatement they have given the information to the appropriate specialist in charge of my son's autopsy. They will now push through to see whether my eldest son suffered from the same abnormality and it had anything to do with his sudden death. They will also keep my 12 year olds neurologist specialist informed of the results so that he can have a clearer picture of what to do about my 12 year olds abnormality.

    My husband had a brain CT scan about 2-3 years ago which showed everything was clear. I am going to have a Brain CT scan today at 2.30 pm to see whether this abnormality has come from me. If it runs in the family the neurologist will have a better understanding of the history of this abnormality.

    The neurologist has been very good at reassuring my youngest son and will do a year MRI brain scan on him.

    Thanks for listening to my prattling on.

    My thoughts are with you all

    Your story has just broken my heart...I am so sorry you lost your son. I am a PICU nurse, and I just wanted to share some information with you. I took care of a little 14 year old girl who suddenly went unresponsive after screaming in the middle of the night that her head was hurting. She ended up having severe bleeds in her brain caused from a ruptured aneuryism. It turns out that her grandfather, great aunt, and another distant relative all died suddenly from a brain aneuryism. Her 2 younger siblings, also were checked by an mri, and one of them also has the pre-disposing condition. The mother and father were also being checked, but I don't know the results. This poor little girl is in a vegetative state now, and probably will not recover. This was an african american family with an obvious hereditary predisposition to brain aneuryisms. Please do all you can to investigate the health of the rest of your family. Maybe there is a surgery that could be performed to correct it? I am so sorry for the loss your family has gone through, and hope you can benefit from this information.
