ABSTRACT
Pseudoaneurysm arising from the superficial temporal artery (STA) is a rare and potentially critical cause of palpable mass. Most pseudoaneurysms form as a result of blunt trauma and present as painless, pulsatile mass that may be associated with pathologic finding and enlarged size. We report a rare case of pseudoaneurysm arising from STA caused by blunt injury and diagnosed by 3-dimensional computed tomography (CT) angiography.
Key Words: Pseudoaneurysm; Superficial temporal artery; Three-dimensional CT angiography
