75% percent of all jugular vein aneurysms cases are diagnosed in children. The authors present an unusual case of a voluminous internal jugular vein aneurysm in a 40 year-old woman. The patient developed a progressive enlarging cervical bulging after an intense emesis episode five years before. The aneurysm was managed by cervicotomy and jugular vein ligature and the patient had an uneventful postoperative recovery. The authors provide a brief review of diagnosis aspects and treatment options for this disease.
