Right subclavian aneurysms involving the intrathoracic portion of the artery are rare and those of fibrodysplastic origin are mentioned in literature only as sporadic cases. In this article, we present two cases of this uncommon pathologic condition and discuss problems concerning diagnostic tools and technical choices. The two patients underwent a successful vascular graft substitution; an echo-Doppler scan revealed that they had no disease 1 and 2 years after the operation.
