True aneurysms of the superficial temporal artery are extremely rare. The majority of these aneurysms are a consequence of trauma. A 56-year-old male noticed a swelling in front of his left ear, which had slowly increased in size. There was no history of trauma. Computed tomography revealed an aneurysm of the main trunk of the superficial temporal artery. A ligation and excision was performed. The postoperative period was uneventful. Histology revealed a true aneurysm.
