    • Abstract:
      Brachial artery aneurysms are rare disease that can be encountered. It is divided into true and false. The frequency of true aneurysm of the brachial artery is so much unusual. So, we present a case of a 59 year old male who presented to us with complaint of mass in left upper limb since many years ago. Now, there was sudden onset of progressive pain with coldness, numbness, tingling sensationand blackish discolouration of skin from 8 hours. The left upper limb was pulseless and color Doppler ultrasound showed a non-pulsatile aneurysm at the mid level of left brachial artery associated with arterial occlusion in its distal branch by thrombus. The patient was successfully revascularised by interposing a saphenous vein graft.Thus,this case suggest that the prompt diagnosis of true brachial artery aneurysm by ultrasound or color Doppler ultrasound and the proper treatment by surgical repair can save limb from dangerous sequel Keywords: brachial artery aneurysm; color doppler ultrasound; true aneurysm; ultrasound.
