    All I can come up with is V17.49.

    2017 ICD-10-CM Coding Book
    V 17.49 is Family history of other cardiovascular diseases.....

    A cerebral or brain aneurysm is a cerebrovascular disorder in which weakness in the wall of a cerebral artery or vein causes a localized dilation or ballooning of the blood vessel.

    This is the definition of brain aneurysm from wikipedia. This being the definition I would use V17.1 - Family history of stroke (cerebrovascular).


    Hope this makes sense.....
