Adven­ti­tial ­cystic dis­ease of the pop­li­teal ­artery (­ACDPA) is an ­unusual ­cause of a uni­lat­eral pro­gres­sive inter­mit­tent claud­i­ca­tion in ­young or ­middle-­aged men. In the ­case ­described ­here, ultra­sound (US) exam­ina­tion pro­vided the pre­op­er­a­tive diag­nosis. The ­lesion was ­dealt ­with by ­simple evac­u­a­tion of the ­cyst and exci­sion of the ­wall. ­This ­simple treat­ment is all ­that is ­required in the ­majority of ­cases and pro­vides ­good ­long-­term ­results.
