Abstract

Jugular vein aneurysms are rare vascular abnormalities that are most commonly encountered in the pediatric population. We report two separate cases in infants, both of whom presented with enlarging neck masses and were found to have jugular vein aneurysms. Diagnosis was established with duplex ultrasonography, computed tomography angiography, digitally subtracted catheter venography, and magnetic resonance imaging in one case and magnetic resonance imaging with magnetic resonance angiography/magnetic resonance venography, gray scale ultrasonography, and digital subtraction catheter venography in the other case. Both aneurysms were treated by surgical resection.
