Congenital abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), a rare condition in neonates, is usually associated with umbilical artery catheterization [ 1 , 2 ] or other conditions such as congenital heart or aortic malformation, infection (mycotic aneurysm) [ 3 , 4 ], connective tissue diseases (Marfan syndrome, Ehlers–Danlos syndrome, Loeys–Dietz syndrome) [ 5 , 6 ], or vasculitis (Takayasu’s disease, Kawasaki syndrome) [ 7 ]. An idiopathic congenital AAA is extremely rare. We report a case of idiopathic congenital AAA consisting of multiple lesions in a Thai neonate born at

carotid artery at the level of the skull base. The Neuron 53 (Penumbra, USA) catheter enables us good maneuverability and is the new generation of guiding catheters, which can be introduced even through the cavernous part of the internal carotid artery all the way to its bifurcation.
A fusiform aneurism of the internal carotid artery is indicated by the arrow. 5000 units of heparin bolus i.a . are administered followed by the passage of the neck of the aneurysm with Marxsmann microcatheter (ev3, Covidien, USA) with the help of the micro guide wire. The guide wire is
