ABSTRACT: Syphilitic intracranial aneurysm is a rare presentation of meningovascular syphilis in developed countries. In this case report, we discuss the utilization of the intracranial vessel wall magnetic resonance imaging in the management of a patient with a rare fusiform brain aneurysm, positive syphilis serologies, and inconclusive cerebrospinal fluid findings.
