See the list below:

  • Cerebral aneurysms are rarely apparent in infants and children. Clinical manifestations increase with age, reaching a peak in people aged 55-60 years.

  • Carotid artery is affected most commonly in individuals younger than 18 years.

  • The prognosis of aneurysmal SAH worsens with increasing age.
