Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This is a case report of a 72-year-old female who presented to our clinic with right temple mass that was found incidentally on a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of her head about 2 years ago, as part of a stroke workup. However, it was thought to be a sebaceous cyst and left as such. The patient then experienced a rapid increase in the size of the mass about 2 weeks prior to her presentation to us. On examination, she had a 2 × 2 cm pulsating aneurysmal mass over the right temporal fossa, which was felt to be an aneurysm of the superficial temporal artery and was confirmed by a color duplex ultrasound examination. Open surgical resection with primary ligation of both proximal and distal branches was achieved under local anesthesia. Pathology confirmed a true (degenerative) aneurysm of the superficial temporal artery. Her postoperative course was uneventful. This case report describes this rare entity along with a review of the literature.
