Abstract

Extracranial carotid artery aneurysms secondary to Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection are exceedingly rare. Despite an uncommon location and offending pathogen, the treatment paradigm follows that of all mycotic aneurysms. We report the case of a right common carotid artery pseudoaneurysm caused by a tuberculous infection, successfully treated with antibiotics, resection, and autologous interposition graft.
