Aneurysms of pericallosal artery are rare conditions, which in some cases are difficult to treat surgically due to anatomical variations or distal location. Three-dimensional printing (3DP) is a new technological tool that allows to realize a physical model from medical imaging data, as generated for example by computed tomography. We report the case of a 68-year-old female with pericallosal aneurysm successfully treated with endovascular embolization, after the development of a 3DP vascular model. In our case, the 3DP model played a crucial role as regards the planning and simulation of the surgical procedure, thus facilitating the treatment of the aneurysm.
