DOI : 10.9739/tjvs.2021.903 Most popliteal vein aneurysms are asymptomatic and commonly detected during Duplex ultrasound examination for varicose veins. Some cases may be misdiagnosed as Baker"s cyst or tibiofibular cysts. Surgical repair is recommended to avoid life-threatening complications including pulmonary embolism. Herein, we report the successful surgical repair of a primary popliteal vein saccular aneurysm misdiagnosed as Baker"s cyst during the initial admission for pulmonary embolism. Keywords : Baker's cyst, popliteal vein, saccular aneurysm
