Abstract

Forehead pseudoaneurysm after falling down is a rare condition. We report a case of a patient with a 2-month history of a forehead growing mass after falling down and bumping her right forehead. The 3-dimensional computed tomography (CT) angiography showed a hyperdense lesion with internal enhancing focus and supplying by one small branch of right superficial temporal artery (STA). Surgical resection of the pseudoaneurysm with coagulation of the feeding artery was performed. However, there was profuse bleeding complication while drainage tube removal, an emergent explored surgical hemostasis was done. In this article, in addition to presenting the clinical course of an unusual case, we wanted to give emphasis to that ligation of the proximal and distal vessels are necessary while surgical resection of the pseudoaneurysm.
