Different: Narrowing of the arteries pretty much describes what is going on. The arteries are getting smaller and blood flow is reduced. An aneurysm is a dilation of a blood vessel which puts is at risk of rupture. It needs to be followed routinely.

Combination: Aneurysm is an enlarged blood vessel.
Frequently there are intraluminal thrombus that fills the lumen to about the normal vessel size.
Narrowing of the associated vessels( iliac for example below aorta) may have atherosclerotic plaque and narrowing as a part of the total disease process.

Talk to your Doctor: This is an aneurysm of an artery by the eyes and heading towards the pituitary. The treatment can be open via opening the skull or fixing it with an internal stent. There are many potential problems which you should discuss with your doctor. It would not be prudent for me to have this type of discussion in this forum.
