We describe a case of a persistent primitive trigeminal artery (PPTA) coexistent with a clival chordoma. During surgery of the tumor, the partially incorporated PPTA was inadvertently traumatized and ruptured. The operation was discontinued and the PPTA was endovascularly occluded permitting further safe resection of the tumor.
