The giant serpentine aneurysm(GSA) is an entity defined on radiological and pathological grounds as a giant, partially thrombosed aneurysm containing tortuous vascular channel which usually supplies the territory distal to the aneurysm. GSAs belong to the subgroup of giant aneurysms, however, they are distinct from giant saccular and fusiform aneurysms. We present a case of giant serpentine aneurysm of a middle cerebral artery treated with wrapping under the extracorporeal circulation and hypothermia.
