Aberrant cervical carotid artery is an uncommon anomaly. Because this anomaly can lie in close proximity to the midline of the posterior part of the pharynx, it poses a significant risk during both major pharyngeal tumor resection and less extensive procedures such as tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy and palatopharyngoplasty. Five cases of aberrant cervical carotid artery were encountered and diagnosed using computerized tomography. In all five cases, the anomalous finding did not correlate with the presenting symptoms. Computerized tomographic images of these cases are provided. A review of the literature and the embryology of the aberrant carotid artery are presented. Awareness of the anomaly by radiologists and surgeons is essential to avoid accidental injury to the vessel during surgery.
