Two cases of isolated dissection of a non-aneurysmal, non-atherosclerotic popliteal artery are reported. Isolated dissection of the popliteal artery is a distinct entity that may have far reaching effects on patient's mobility if not adequately treated. This lesion can be seen in non-aneurysmal, non-atherosclerotic vessels and in patients with no predisposing medical causes. It requires a high degree of suspicion for diagnosis because of its rarity. Surgical treatment is the best option and results in a good outcome.
