My 13 year old had a CT scan and we have been asked to return for an MRI and MRA and consult with a neurosurgeon due to an enlarged vein found in her brain. One of her grandfathers died of a stomach aneurysm and her other grandfather presently has one and is waiting till it gets large enough to warrant its removal. Also her Aunt had a brain aneurysm rupture a few years ago. Can the family history of aneurysms be related to the Enlarged Vein in her hind brain?
