Pulsatile Temporal Swelling—Successful Removal of a True Superficial Temporal Artery Aneurysm
- 5 Downloads
True superficial temporal artery aneurysms are rare, while pseudo-aneurysms are more common. We report the case of a 43-year-old gentleman who had a pulsatile swelling in the right pre-auricular region with no history of trauma. He underwent an uneventful and curative surgical excision of the aneurysm.
