By this case report the authors are aimed to describe an unusual case of epidermoid tumour associated with ipsilateral two cerebral aneurysms. Radiological and clinical findings of a 45 year old male patient are described. Investigation of the patient revealed a right temporal lobe tumour and ipsilateral two aneurysms. The patient is treated with micro-neurosurgery successfully. Both the tumour and the right MCA aneurysm are interfereted in the same session. His pathological diagnose was epidermoid tumour. Togetherness of epidermoid tumours and cerebral aneurysms is a very rare entity. Further studies are needed to demonstrate the exact pathological and genetic mechanisms.
