Venous aneu­rysms are uncom­mon in the vas­cu­lar pathol­o­gy of the low­er ­limb. They are ­more com­mon­ly encoun­tered in the ­neck, tho­rac­ic ­veins and vis­cer­al ­veins. Involvement of the pop­li­teal ­veins is not ­often encoun­tered. These aneu­rysms ­often ­cause throm­bo­sis and sub­se­quent­ly pul­mo­nary embo­lism. Phlebogra­phy and ­duplex scan­ning ­give the ­most accu­rate diag­no­sis. As the ­risk of asso­ciat­ed pul­mo­nary embo­lism is ­high, elec­tive sur­gery is rec­om­mend­ed ­since it has ­been prov­en ­that prop­er anti­co­ag­u­la­tion treat­ment ­does not pre­vent the ­risk of pul­mo­nary embo­lism.
