Abstract

Pseudoaneurysms of the superficial temporal artery are uncommon but mainly result secondary to blunt or penetrating trauma of the frontotemporal region of the head. The authors report a clinical case of a young male with a false aneurysm of superficial temporal artery. Five weeks before he had a blunt trauma of the head. The authors did surgical resection via proximal and distal artery ligation.
