Despite significant research and investment in resources, the pathogenesis of cerebral aneurysms remains to be completely elucidated. Early investigators argued in favor of a congenital etiology of aneurysmal formation, including hypotheses involving the medial defects of Forbus and other possible sources of weakness inherent to vessel walls at birth. Subsequent researchers focused on developmental factors in aneurysmal formation, including such mechanical factors as hypertension, turbulence, and resonance. Interestingly, current research has refocused on a congenital etiology, namely genetic factors, that might predispose some individuals to aneurysmal formation. It is likely that a combination of congenital and developmental factors participates in aneurysmal formation and rupture, and it is hoped that further efforts to understand these factors will lead to improved treatment and diagnostic modalities to improve the morbidity and mortality of patients with intracerebral aneurysms.
