Two new cases of extradural hematoma associated with traumatic middle meningeal artery pseudoaneurysm are presented. Sixteen such cases have previously been reported in the literature. A 22-year-old man and a 17-year-old woman each developed marked neurological deficits after head injury. In each case percutaneous common carotid angiography demonstrated a conspicuous aneurysmatic sac on the middle meningeal artery, as well as displacement of major intracranial vessels and a surrounding avascular area. At operation the extradural clot was removed and the middle meningeal artery sac was verified. Both patients recovered uneventfully. Histological analysis of one of the specimens was performed.
