Intracranial giant aneurysms have been known to cause clinical signs and symptoms, either by rupture, compression of surrounding structures, repeated minor leakage, or cerebral ischemia due to thromboembolism. A giant aneurysm which manifests only a seizure disorder comprises relatively few contributions. The authors present a case of a giant, unruptured aneurysm solely presenting with generalized tonic-clonic type seizure in a 43-year-old man. Brain computed tomogram(CT) and 3-D CT angiogram demonstrated a huge calcified aneurysm at the bifurcation of right middle cerebral artery. Complete neck clipping and aneurysmectomy followed by uneventful neurologic recovery.
