Pseudoaneurysms usually occur due to blunt trauma to the atherosclerotic vessels. The main pathophysiology is the disruption of the vessel wall and subsequent collection of the blood under adventitia and surrounding tissues. The localization of the lesion is determinant for the severity of the clinical presentation. Herein, we present a 64-year-old male case in whom Doppler ultrasound revealed a carotid artery pseudoaneurysm treated with endovascular method using a covered stent graft.
