Traumatic pseudoaneurysms of the superficial temporal artery are uncommon. They present to a variety of specialities - orthopaedics, ear, nose and throat, neurosurgery, maxillofacial, plastic surgery, vascular surgery and dermatology. Experience managing these lesions is therefore limited and diluted. We present a case of a giant, traumatic pseudoaneurysm of the superficial temporal artery, which required the unusual approach of staged surgical excision.
