Two cases are reported of coexistent intracranial aneurysm and arteriovenous malformation. Both lesions ruptured within one week in one patient and within three months in the other. The rarity of such occurrences is discussed and the surgical operative procedures used are described. One patient is doing well except for some weakness of the right leg and mild dysphasia. The second patient died three months postoperatively, probably because of rupture of the aneurysm. No autopsy was obtained.
