Abstract

Pseudoaneurysms of the popliteal artery arising from blunt knee trauma is an exceedingly rare condition and to our knowledge only less than 20 cases have been reported so far. We present the case of a 72 year old lady who presented with painful pulsatile swelling left popliteal fossa. Investigations revealed a large pseudoaneurysm of the left popliteal artery. She was treated by aneurysmectomy and reconstruction with an interposition PTFE graft. We are reporting this case for the rarity of its occurrence and because the possibility of such a pathology should be kept in mind when evaluating popliteal fossa swellings.
