Pulsatile oropharyngeal and neck mass caused by bilateral tortuous internal carotid artery: a case report

The cervical course of the internal carotid artery is
almost straight in contrast to the intracranial portions
which are highly tortuous. The incidence of variations
in the cervical course of the internal carotid artery of
the population is approximately 10-40 percent. In
this case report, a 76-year-old female patient with a
pulsatile mass at the posterior oropharyngeal wall
and anterior neck was presented. Physical examination
revealed a pulsatile anterior neck mass, and a
pulsatile mass at the right posterior wall of the oropharynx.
Imaging revealed a bilateral tortuous internal
carotid artery and segmental left internal carotid
arterectomy and distal internal carotid artery - lateral
common carotid artery anastamosis were performed
with no postoperative complications.

Keywords: Neck mass; oropharyngeal mass; tortuousinternal carotid artery.
