The venous pseudoaneurysms of the neck are uncommon clinical entities that usually involve the internal jugular vein and less frequently the external jugular vein. Very few cases have been reported in the worlds academic medical literature. The pseudoaneurysms of the cervical venous system are infrequent due to the low pressure in the vena cava. The most frequent causes include vein wall injury due to multiple puncture attempts to obtain central venous access, surgery, local damage due to intravenous drug abuse and trauma.
