The frequency of peripheral artery aneurysms in the upper extremities is less than in the lower extremities. Diagnosis and surgical treatment are important because upper extremity aneurysms can severely compromise the function of a limb and possibly lead to the loss of an arm or fingers. Very rarely, posttraumatic upper extremity pseudoaneurysms show symptoms after a long period of time. Diagnosis can be made on review of the patient's history and a physical examination. Surgical reconstruction is the preferred treatment for such patients. We present a case of a brachial artery pseudoaneurysm following humeral fracture.
