A popliteal artery aneurysm of peculiar etiology was observed in an 18-year-old female who had been diagnosed with exostosis of her left femur. She complained of pain and had subcutaneous bleeding of the left popliteal artery. Computed tomography demonstrated a left popliteal artery aneurysm and an exostosis of the femur, which penetrated into the aneurysm. She received surgery that included aneurysmectomy, repair of the popliteal artery and excision of the exostosis, with good postoperative recovery. The aneurysm was considered a result of popliteal artery impingement by the exostosis. Such cases are rare, bringing to 32 the total number of such cases recorded thus far.
