Cerebral aneurysm in infancy is rare. This is the case report of an infant with ruptured cerebral aneurysm who presented with high-grade fever and seizure and admitted in the neurosurgery department. Computed tomography angiography (CTA) brain done earlier showed aneurysm arising from peripheral branch of right anterior cerebral artery. The sudden clinical deterioration necessitated urgent surgical intervention and was conducted under general anaesthesia with invasive haemodynamic monitoring. Massive blood loss with raised intracranial pressure and the resultant haemodynamic instability was well-managed. Temperature was maintained throughout the surgery. Prompt intervention at the appropriate time combined with the effective management resulted in the good neurological recovery of the child. The infant was discharged the next day from intensive care unit to ward.
