ConclusionICA pseudoaneurysms in the sphenoid sinus are uncommon. To accurately identify ICA pseudoaneurysms, collaboration between otolaryngologists and imaging specialists is essential. On the other hand, both surgical and interventional treatments can achieve good results; therefore, otolaryngologists should enhance their cooperation with neurosurgery and intervention departments. Accurate diagnosis and rapid treatment are keys to managing ICA pseudoaneurysms.
