A 49-years-old man was admitted for a paralytic sensation on his right leg. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed meningioma on left cerebral convexity which compressed occipital lobe. Digital subtraction angiography showed unruptured cerebral aneurysm on left middle cerebral artery bifurcation area. To planning the treatment strategy of these two coexistence pathologies. the author considered two facts of this patient. Fact one, the patient's symptom was generated from peritumoral edema. Fact two, unruptured aneurysm was far from the tumor and might rarely be influenced by tumor surgery. Therefore, the author removed meningioma at first and clipped aneurysm three months later. The postoperative course was uneventful and the patient did not complained any neurological deficits.
