A case of acute carotid artery injury with unusual presentation is described. Although the clinical and radiographic examinations were in favor of a large cerebral infarction, the initial angiogram in this patient failed to demonstrate any intracranial or extracranial vascular injury. A subsequent angiogram, however, demonstrated a pseudoaneurysm of the left common carotid artery which was treated surgically. He made an excellent recovery in his neurological functions postoperatively.
