Intracranial aneurysms are extremely rare in infancy. No consensus has yet been developed about the exact treatment of this rare situation. The authors report the case of a 47-day-old male infant who had multiple seizures on the same day, leading to the diagnosis of an intracranial aneurysm. The case was managed conservatively with close imaging follow-up, and the patient had a good recovery. The results of neurological examination were completely normal at the 5-year follow-up visit.
