Aneurysm of the extra­cra­ni­al inter­nal carot­id ­artery is a ­rare ­event. This is a pathol­o­gy ­with an ele­vat­ed mor­tal­ity of 70%. The ­most impor­tant etio­log­ic fac­tor is ath­ero­scler­o­sis. Here we ­report a ­case of sur­gi­cal­ly treat­ed extra­cra­ni­al inter­nal carot­id ­artery (ICA) aneu­rysm. A 77-­year-old man ­noticed a later­o­cer­vi­cal pul­sa­tile ­mass. Color Dop­pler ultra­so­nog­ra­phy ­revealed an ICA aneu­rysm relat­ed to a parie­tal throm­bo­sis. The ICA aneu­rysm was con­firmed by ­intro-arte­ri­al dig­i­tal sub­trac­tion angio­gra­phy, and cere­bral com­put­er tomog­ra­phy (CT) was neg­a­tive. Surgical treat­ment recon­struc­tion ­with the inter­po­si­tion of a ­part of the ­great saph­e­nous ­vein was indi­cat­ed. Exploration of the aneu­rys­mat­ic ­wall ­revealed a pos­te­ro­lat­er­al dis­sec­tion. In ­this ­paper are dis­cussed clin­i­cal and ther­a­peu­tic impli­ca­tions.
