Abstract

We report the imaging findings and endovascular treatment in an unusual case of petrous internal carotid artery pseudoaneurysm due to primary tuberculous otitis. The aneurysm was recognized and ruptured during a surgical intervention for otitis. Successful endovascular treatment of the aneurysm was performed by occlusion of the parent vessel using detachable balloon and coils.
