A case of iatrogenic false aneurysm of the superficial temporal artery is presented. Direct injection of Urograffin into the pulsatile mass showed aneurysmal dilatation, 3x2cm sized, of the superficial temporal artery. Aneurysm excision is indicated to reduce the risk of hemorrhage from the subsequent head trauma, to relieve headache, and for any cosmetic defect. The authors have reviewed the literature, and discussed the incidence, classification, pathogenesis, clinical and angiographic diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and treatment.
