Mycotic cerebral aneurysms are rare inflammatory aneurysms associated with high mortality and morbidity reaching up to 80% after rupture. We report a case of incidentally diagnosed infective endocarditis presenting with rupture of distal middle cerebral artery mycotic aneurysm and intracerebral hematoma. Aneurysmectomy with clip ligation of the terminal cortical branch and hematoma evacuation was done with good surgical outcome.
