Aneurysmal degeneration of a saphenous vein graft is a rare complication and, so far, only three cases involving a carotid artery have been described. We report the case of a patient with a cervical neoplasm presenting carotid invasion, who underwent en bloc tumor resection and carotid reconstruction with a saphenous vein graft. Six years later, during follow-up, an aneurysm of the carotid graft was detected. Endovascular intervention was performed using a covered stent. Three years after this intervention, the patient was found to be asymptomatic, and computed tomography showed that the covered stent was patent, without complications.
