Massive epistaxis following blunt craniofacial trauma should alert clinicians to possible traumatic internal carotid artery (ICA) aneurysm. This article describes a case of a 46-year-old female patient with traumatic ICA pseudoaneurysm presenting similar to a sphenoid sinus mass lesion. Massive bleeding occurred during the endoscopic procedure. Brain angiography revealed two lobulated ICA pseudoaneurysms over a cavernous segment. The patient successfully underwent endovascular stent assisted coil embolization. Timely diagnosis and treatment of the ICA psuedoaneurysm produced a favourable outcome.
