Isolated injury to the brachiocephalic artery is relatively rare. We report the case of a 53-year-old lymphoma patient who had had a biopsy at mediastinoscopy in the past and was found incidentally on routine staging computed tomography to have developed a large pseudoaneurysm of the brachiocephalic artery. We describe the successful percutaneous treatment of this iatrogenic injury using endovascular deployment of covered stent-grafts.
