Thirty-eight cases of giant serpentine aneurysms (GSA), including 17 GSA of the middle cerebral artery (MCA), were reviewed in the literature. The treatment possibilities of GSA of the MCA are discussed together with our own case who was a 39-year-old male with a GSA of the right MCA and was treated only by STA-MCA anastomosis. The pathogenetic mechanism of progressive enlargement of the aneurysm is also discussed.
