A 20 year-old man presented with pain and swelling of the left submandibular area. Neck sonography revealed enlargement of the submandibular gland, coarsening of its echotexture with a few calculi and a multiloculated cystic lesion. Doppler sonography revealed venous flow within the cystic lesion and aneurysmal dilatation of the adjacent facial vein. CT angiography confirmed the facial vein aneurysm. We hypothesize that inflammation of the gland had weakened the wall of the adjacent facial vein, causing aneurysmal dilatation. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Clin Ultrasound, 2012;
