Depends on twin type: If you are in the denticle twin it is very possible your twin could have the same problem. If you are not and identical twin it is not likely.

If one does not exist, it is unlikely to develop. http://thejns.org/doi/abs/10.3171/jns.1971.35.5.0601 Association does not prove causality, but we don't understand the embryology well enough to know the causes of aneurysms. ...Read more

It has been found in cases with linkage to anomalies on the x, 3rd, 7th, 9th, 14th & 17th chromosomes. Their also sibling pairs that define autosomal recessive cases. All are considered rare with outcomes varying to the degree of defect. ...Read more

MRI vertebrobasilar hypoplasia right side theres robust flow void anastomosing the basilar artery w cavernous portion of internal carotid artery/mean?
Normal variant: The arteries at the base of the brain can course in several different patterns but ultimately get the job done, that is, supply brain tissue. Your pattern is like your fingerprint. Some more unusual patterns have an increased association with aneurysms, but this would have likely been described if present and vertebro basilar hypoplasia, as in the picture, is pretty common. ...Read more
