We report herein an 11-year-old pedestrian struck by a motorcycle, who suffered subdural hematoma and aortic rupture and developed traumatic pseudoaneurysm. He was treated conservatively for the first 24 hours and submitted to stent placement occluding the aneurysm neck. There were no recurrences in the post-procedure period and the child was discharged after 21 days without sequelae. This report also reviews trauma mechanisms and management of such threatening lesions in the pediatric population.
