A 52-year-old man underwent resection of an oligodendroglioma in the left frontal lobe, followed by chemoradiation therapy in 1989. He presented with a de novo aneurysm arising from the feeding artery of a recurrent malignant glioma in 2009. Serial follow-up magnetic resonance imaging showed no tumor progression until 19 years after the initial diagnosis. Angiography revealed an intratumoral aneurysm of the dilated feeding artery. The recurrent tumor was resected together with the aneurysm. Histological examination revealed that the tumor was an anaplastic oligodendroglioma, and the aneurysm was encased in the tumor. Clinicians should carefully look for tumor recurrence and aneurysm formation during follow up of patients treated for malignant glioma.
