The traumatic false aneurysm of the vertebral artery, as distinct from arteriovenous fistula, is rare condition. The aneurysm of the extracranial vertebral artery is most frequently related to penetrating or perforating injury, such as gunshot or stab injury, and it is not true aneurysm but false aneurysm. We expected a case of false aneurysm in 52 years old man who had taken penetrating neck trauma by sharp steel rod at work. The vertebral angiogram disclosed an aneurysmal shadow and occlusion of the vertebral artery at the level of the axis and successfully treated by clipping of the artery and resection of the aneurysmal mass.
