Developmental vascular anomalies of brain are non-modifiable risk factors for the development of aneurysms and are prone for rupture. We report one such association in a 44–year-old gentleman who succumbed to subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) secondary to ruptured distal anterior cerebral artery aneurysm associated with vascular anomalies in the anterior and posterior circulation that included trifurcation of anterior cerebral artery and bilateral fetal posterior cerebral arteries. We identified multiple anomalies in circle of Willis that could have contributed to the formation of aneurysm and early rupture. Knowledge of these variations is essential to plan early and optimum management with close follow-up.
