When a mass is visible in the anterior aspect of the neck of a patient, differential diagnoses of masses as tumors, lymph nodes or vascular lesions are contemplated. When the lesion is pulsating, on the right side of the anterior neck, a tortuous innominate artery simulating a mass is likely. We describe a case of innominate and right carotid artery tortuosity that was detected while treating the patient for a hypertensive urgency.
