Blood blister-like aneurysms (BBAs) are rare but challenging to treat owing to their fragile, thin walls and poorly defined necks. A right-sided aortic arch is an uncommon congenital cardiac anomaly with an estimated incidence of only 0.1% and presents a challenge to intubation at vessels above the aortic arch. This represents an extremely rare case of a BBA at the left internal carotid artery with a right-sided aortic arch treated with combined endovascular and vascular surgical therapy. We report the case and provide a short review of the relevant literature.
