A 48-year-old female presented with intermittent headache and right hemiparesis for 6 years. Non-contrast computed tomography of head revealed a space-occupying lesion (SOL) in left frontotemporal region which was partially calcified [
(a) NCCT reveals SOL in left fronto temporal region which was partially calcified. (b) MRI axial flair image shows layered thrombus inside the SOL. (c and d) CT angiography shows an aneurysm arising from MCA with significant calcification. DSA of Left ICA (e) oblique view and (f) lateral view showing a large filling aneurysm arising from left MCA(arrow). In addition, there is a large non filling portion (?thrombosed ) of aneurysm shown by arrow heads.
