A patient with an asymptomatic, right-sided internal carotid artery aneurysm is reported. The entity was accurately located and diagnosed pre-operatively by utilizing a duplex ultrasonographic scanner. Treatment comprised aneurysmectomy and restoration of arterial continuity by autogenous venous grafting. The patient recovered without the occurrence of any sequelae.
