This is the first reported case of medial cystic degeneration of the popliteal artery presenting as distal embolization and contains a high-definition photo of the cyst in situ. Duplex ultrasound and magnetic resonance angiography are useful adjuncts to diagnosis. Based on the published literature, resection and interposition grafting appears to be the most efficacious treatment modality.
