The radiologic appearance of inflammatory pseudotumor in the two cases presented was a fusiform mass surrounding the carotid bifurcation. The masses showed an avascular mass with focal narrowing of the carotid bifurcation on carotid arteriography, a homogeneous hypoechoic mass on ultrasound, less enhancement on contrast-enhanced computed tomography, and relatively intense enhancement on magnetic resonance imaging.
