Intracranial aneurysms were demonstrated in three patients, aged 66, 76, and 77. Because of the unendurable pain and advancing neurological deficits surgical intervention became mandatory. The authors present the details of their surgical management of these cases. The article serves to emphasize the occurrence of intracranial aneurysms in the geriatric patient and the possibility that such vascular lesions may become more frequent in an aging population.
