Traumatic thoracic aortic pseudoaneurysm is a rare and has a high mortality rate. Forensic identification in a living individual is even more rare. We herein present the case involving a 25-year-old male who developed a thoracic aortic pseudoaneurysm after a traffic accident. The debate, in this case, focused on whether a causal relationship was present between the traffic accident and the aortic pseudoaneurysm. Based on the patient's trauma history, clinical manifestations, clear evidence of chest trauma, surgical findings, and exclusion of potential diseases, we determined that a causal relationship was present between the trauma and the aortic pseudoaneurysm. We propose that potential autogenous diseases should be excluded in the future evaluation of similar cases.
