A patient with multiple dolichoectasia of the intracranial cerebral artery was followed sequentially with clinical and radiological progression of disease in the past 5 years. The patient was treated in multiple stages in the past 5 years with the endovascular and microsurgical clipping method. The maximum diameter of each major intracranial artery segment was recorded and compared in the follow-up year. The progression in size of the dolichoectatic segment was observed in spite of surgical intervention. In review diagnostic criteria, etiopathogenesis and treatment options have been discussed.
