The clinical presentation of a neck venous aneurysms, implies a diagnostic challenge due to its rarity. They are presented as neck masses that can easily be confused with other clinical neck entities. Doppler ultrasound technique is the gold standard to confirm its diagnosis. Therapeutic approach varies from surgical resection to watch & wait. We report a clinical case of a 79-year-old woman who came with this vascular defect. Surgical resection was performed and postoperative period runs without complications.

Keywords : External jugular vein; aneurysm; thrombosis.
