RESUMEN
The coexistence of internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis and intracranial aneurysm, although uncommon, can be a therapeutic dilemma.

We present a case of a 73-year-old woman with a history of arterial hypertension and diabetes who had a severe symptomatic ICA stenosis (>90%) and an incidental ipsilateral cerebral aneurysm. The carotid stenosis was treated with angioplasty and stenting using a distal cerebral protection system. The patient was anticoagulated and maintained on antiplatelet therapy according to a standard protocol. Microcoil embolization of the aneurysm was performed 5 months after an intracranial stent was implanted. No growth has been observed in the aneurysm of the arterial lumen since the carotid intervention. There were no complications after the procedures during the postoperative period.

This case shows that the incidental presence of an ipsilateral intracranial aneurysm does not appear to be a contraindication for the endovascular treatment of a carotid artery stenosis.
