Primary popliteal venous aneurysms are very rare vascular abnormalities, with 50 cases reported in the English literature. Thromboembolic complications are common in popliteal venous aneurysms. Since medical treatment has been proved inadequate, surgical repair is recommended with a minimum time delay. However, it involves some risk because of the complex anatomy of the popliteal space. We report on a case of popliteal venous aneurysm, in which the tibial nerve was involved in the aneurysmal wall and was injured by surgical repair.
