A 39-year-old woman experienced recurrent, severe bursting headache which was abruptly developed at the time of orgasm. Both magnetic resonance angiography and conventional angiogram of the brain confirmed dissecting aneurysm of the basilar artery. After the neuroradiological intervention using a stent was performed, she has been totally free of the orgasmic headache during the follow-up period for about one year.
