Pseudoaneurysm of the superficial temporal artery: case report and review of the literature

Since the first description by Bartholin in 1740, 386 cases of aneurysms of the facial vasculature have been reported in the world literature. Of these, less than 200 were of the superficial temporal artery (STA) [1]. Such STA lesions are commonly pseudoaneurysms presenting within weeks of direct trauma. We present a case of STA pseudoaneurysm following a closed head injury.
