We report a case of traumatic false aneurysm developed in the right glabella in a 5-year-old boy 3 weeks after an innocuous fall. Ultrasound, CT and facial arteriography did not reveal the feeding artery. After direct puncture of the glabellar bulge and rapid aspiration of blood, percutaneous contrast agent infusion revealed that the false aneurysm was supplied by the contralateral angular artery. Intralesional obliteration with cyanoacrylate was subsequently performed smoothly. Succeeding excision was easy and the cosmetic outcome was excellent.
