A sixty four year-old female patient was admitted to the hospital with complaints of pulsatile mass in her left cervical area for one year, which had abruptly augmented one month earlier. No cervical trauma or infection appeared to be present. There was a 3x4cm pulsatile mass in the left cervical angle of the mandible, which could be observed with vascular murmur. Tomographic angiography showed a saccular aneurysm of 32x30x25mm in diameter in the left ICA. Aneurysmal dilatation was resected and primarily repaired by end-to-end anastomosis. The postoperative recovery was uneventful. Histopathologic examination showed hyperplasia in artery wall, mucous degeneration, hyalinization, chronic inflammatory cell infiltration, and local calcification. The patient was doing well during the early follow-up period without complications.
