In this case, we report a tumor occupying 76.19% of the intracranial cavity which is diagnosed with magnetic resonance imaging. This tumor is inspected as one of the biggest intracranial mass lesions in literature. In such cases, the postoperative survival rate is low due to several factors such as perioperative bleeding, sudden volume changes in the intracranial cavity and intracranial hypotension. The surgical excision is open to question.
