The giant aneurysm of the subclinoid portion of the internal carotid artery is a relatively rare disease that can present serious complications. We present the case of a 40-year-old guy who was suffering from a headache and had complete ophthalmoplegia in his right eye. A brain scan shows a right temporal subdural hematoma, associated with subarachnoid hemorrhage, and total Sylvian subacute ischemic stroke. CT angiography and MRI showed a ruptured and partially thrombosed aneurysm of the subclinoid portion of the right internal carotid artery complicated by subarachnoid hemorrhage, a right subdural temporal hematoma, and total Sylvian ischemic stroke. Our purpose is to recognize the possibility of an aneurysmal rupture when evaluating an acute subdural hematoma, alone or in combination with Ischemic stroke.
