    BACKGROUND: Treatment of multiple intracranial aneurysms is particularly demanding and even more so in a developing country where access to specialized centers may be prevented by different factors. METHODS: Single-stage surgical treatment of 7 cerebral aneurysms was performed in a 58-year-old woman from the northern Peruvian Andes. RESULTS: All 7 aneurysms were successfully and safely clipped through 2 lateral supraorbital craniotomies. The double clip technique was used in 3 aneurysms to prevent any residual aneurysmai neck. CONCLUSIONS: Good teamwork and correct application of microsurgical principles may allow effective treatment in complex neurosurgical cases even in resourcechallenged environments.
