Filled Under:

Popliteal artery cyst

This is a popliteal arteriogram of a 27 year old male who presented with pain in left calf when exercising. Signs of deep vein thrombosis were negative but there was minimal swelling at the left ankle. A palpable pulsatile mass could be felt on the popliteal fossa. On arteriography a filling defect was obtained as shown in the picture above. CT scan confirmed that the cyst was within the popliteal artery wall.
