Aneurysm

EMILY (on phone): I’m looking up aneurysm in our medical dictionary to see if I just had one.

An aneurysm is a bulge in the wall of a blood vessel. They can occur in the heart, abdomen, legs and kidneys, but people often associate them with an aneurysm of the brain, which can cause a severe stroke. Aneurysms are often fatal.
