We ­present the clin­i­cal and neu­ro­ra­dio­log­i­cal fea­tures of a rup­tured aneu­rysm at the begin­ning of the left PICA suf­fer­ing from sub­arach­noid hem­or­rhage (SAH). The young ­patient ­refused sur­gery, endo­vas­cu­lar treat­ment and also fol­low-up. After 4 and 5 years she repeat­ed the left ver­te­bral angio­gra­phy that ­showed a spon­ta­ne­ous throm­bo­sis of the aneu­rysm. After 8 years MR angio­gram imag­es con­firmed the total oblit­er­a­tion of the aneu­rysm.
