We describe a patient in whom this condition manifested with epistaxis and led to the formation of a pseudoaneurysm occupying the right sphenoid sinus. The lesion recurred after repeated attempts at conservative endovascular therapy. Eventually the patient was treated with endovascular occlusion of the right internal carotid artery.
