Branches of ­the extra­cra­ni­al inter­nal carot­id ­artery ­are ­very ­rare. A ­case is report­ed where­in an aber­rant ­artery orig­i­nat­ed ­from ­the ­bulb of ­the inter­nal carot­id ­artery (­ICA) approx­i­mate­ly 2 cm ­from ­the bifur­ca­tion. The ­ICA ­was occlud­ed dis­tal to ­the ­branch’s ori­gin. Arteriography in ­this ­case ­gave ­the appear­ance of a carot­id “­string ­sign”. Vascular sur­geons ­and radiol­o­gists ­should be ­aware of ­this anom­a­ly ­when inter­pret­ing carot­id arter­i­o­grams.
