We describe a transfalcine approach to clipping and subsequently excising an expanding mycotic callosomarginal aneurysm. The patient had a devastating dominant (left) hemispheric spontaneous intracranial hemorrhage and was neurologically improving at the time of surgery nearly 2 months later. To avoid retracting the left hemisphere, we approached this left callosomarginal aneurysm from the nondominant side through the falx. The approach was straight-forward, and the result was satisfactory.
