Abstract

Transient perivascular inflammation of the carotid artery (TIPIC) syndrome, historically named idiopathic carotidynia or Fay syndrome, is a rare condition characterized by inflammation and pain in the carotid artery. The diagnosis requires a specific clinical-radiological presentation. We describe a 37-year-old female who presented with headaches and left neck pain and was diagnosed with TIPIC syndrome with temporary perivascular infiltration.
