Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Significant facial soft tissue injury can result from trauma to the head and neck. The long-term sequelae of such injuries include vascular anomalies, which may present weeks or months following the initial injury. We report here a case of a post-traumatic facial artery aneurysm which developed in a pediatric patient three weeks following a penetrating facial injury during motor vehicle accident (MVA). Although post-traumatic aneurysm of the facial artery is rare, follow-up on head and neck trauma patients with respect to this type of complication is warranted.
