Carotid artery aneurysms are an uncommon but important problem. Untreated, these aneurysms lead to neurologic symptoms from embolization. Although open surgery has been the primary mode of treatment, these aneurysms are being treated more commonly with endovascular approaches. This article describes a case of aneurysms of the carotid artery and discusses etiology, diagnostic modalities, and treatment.
