Injury to the carotid artery from blunt trauma, when not lethal, will often go unrecognized. A 37-year-old male was the belted driver in a motor vehicle accident 15 years prior to presenting with intermittent left upper extremity parasthesias and weakness. A large, calcified distal right internal carotid artery (ICA) pseudoaneurysm was diagnosed and successfully excluded with a 7 x 30 mm covered stent.
