Ozlem Unsal, Didem Rifki, Ender Uysal, Berna Uslu Coskun

A 5 year old female patient with massive oropharyngeal haemorrhages in 13th, 34th, and 40th days after an adenotonsillectomy is evaluated by angiography because of a suspected vascular abnormality demonstrated a pseudoaneurysm of the right lingual artery. In angiography pseudoaneurysm was found and the affected artery was coil embolisated. Vascular pathologies should be considered in the delayed, severe post-tonsillectomy haemorrhages. Angiography is an effective intervention for both diagnosis and treatment of these patients.

Keywords: Embolization, haemorrhage, pseudoaneurysm, tonsillectomy
