Abstract

Aneuroysm of the intrapectous carotis artery is an extremely rare and potentially serious occurence that presents diagnostic and therapeutic difficulties. Such aneurysms may follow trauma, atherosclerosis, mastoid surgery or most commonly can represent a developmental abnormality. We present the case of an 18-year-old female with a short history of recurrent left-sided otalifa and epistaxis who underwent successful endovascular ballon entrapment of a left intrapetrous carotid aneurysm.
