Background:: Vein of Galen aneurysmal malformations are a rare entity of vascular malformations that present themselves in neonates and infants by congestive heart failure in early days of life or later on by hydrocephalus and macrocephaly; very few reports exist on their presentation in adulthood. Case Presentation:: In this case report, we review a case of an adult suffering from vein of Galen aneurysmal malformation that was not diagnosed until the early thirties of his life. His main clinical symptoms were dementia and impotence. Conclusions:: Vein of Galen aneurysmal malformation is extremely rare in adult. We present this case for better understanding of the pathophysiological process of such a rare disorder.
