Bilateral cavernous carotid aneurysm (CCA) is a rare entity. Its association with connective tissue disorder makes the diagnosis and treatment of symptomatic patient an enigma. We present a case report of a 25-year-old female medical student presented to us with bilateral spontaneous atypically symptomatic CCA with incidentally diagnosed case of Ehlers–Danlos syndrome. Both surgical and endovascular options of treatment were weighed and were ultimately treated satisfactorily by high-flow bypass with carotid artery ligation with an insurance bypass.
