Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1) is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder, mainly characterized by skin and peripheral nervous system abnormalities. Uncommonly, NF-1 may be associated with peripheral or supra-aortic trunks artery aneurysms. We report a case of symptomatic multiple occipital artery aneurysms detected in a 53-year-old woman affected by sporadic NF-1. An endovascular approach was performed to exclude aneurysms and to stop laterocervical spontaneous hematoma.
