Blunt cerebrovascular injuries (BCVI) have been increasingly recognized in the past decade due to the initiation of different screening protocols. We present the case of an anterior cerebral artery rupture with free contrast extravasation following a severe traumatic brain injury. Epidemiology, modalities of screening and treatment of BCVI are discussed. This report reminds that the screening of BCVI may be essential after a severe TBI.
