A 64-year-old woman with a long-standing deformity of the neck presented with a rapidly enlarging neck mass following sudden turning of the head. Cervical radiographs demonstrated a large erosion of the posterior elements of the cervical vertebra at the site of the deformity. and angiography revealed an aneurysmal sac of the left vertebral artery. The differential diagnoses of enlarging neck masses associated with these radiographic findings are discussed.
