Incidence of extracranial carotid aneurysm is rare and represents a challenge to treatment strategy. Two patients presented to us a couple of years apart with pulsatile neck swellings. We propose that the extracranial carotid artery pseudoaneurysm was as a result of direct extension from tuberculous lymphadenitis and discuss the management of these patients.
