A false aneurysm of the internal mammary artery is a very rare clinical entity. Early and accurate diagnosis and treatment of false aneurysms of internal mammary artery are critical, as it may result in rupture, severe bleeding, and even death. Currently, endovascular therapeutic approaches such as stenting and coil embolization have been considered the first-line treatment. Herein, we report a case of false aneurysm of the internal mammary artery in the light of literature data.
