DOI : 10.9739/uvcd.2015-45937 Primary popliteal venous aneurysm (PVA) is a rare, but a life-threatening pathology affecting the venous system. Most of patients with PVA are asymptomatic, and pulmonary embolism may be the initial symptom. Duplex ultrasonography is an appropriate method for the diagnosis. Although management of asymptomatic PVA is still controversial, surgery is indicated in all symptomatic patients with venous aneurysms. Herein, we report a 67-year-old male patient with left PVA in whom surgical repair was performed. Keywords : Aneurysm; popliteal vein; ultrasonography
