Non-traumatic multiple saccular aneurysms of the middle meningeal artery are extremely rare lesions. In our case the patient was a 51-year-old woman admitted with complaints of progressive headache. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a dilatation of the vein of galen malformation. Cerebral angiography revealed multiple saccular aneurysms of the middle meningeal artery and fistulous type of galenic arteriovenous malformation.
