Abstract

A 3 1-year-old man with pulmonary tuberculosis who did not have human immunodeficiency virus had massive epistaxis from a giant petrous internal carotid artery pseudoaneurysm. Endovascular trapping of the aneurysm was performed, curing the epistaxis. MR showed multiple enhancing brain lesions that resolved with additional antituberculous drug therapy.
