Abstract/Notes OBJECTIVE: To discuss the management of a patient with unilateral lower extremity pain as a consequence of a popliteal aneurysm.

CLINICAL FEATURES: An 85-year-old male had difficulty in ambulating due to low back and lower extremity pain. Standard tests demonstrated and reproduced pain at the lower back while inspection, palpation, and auscultation revealed a pulsatile mass in the popliteal fossa of the right knee.

CONCLUSION: Resolution of pain and guarded gait was accomplished by a multidisciplinary approach combining conservative care and invasive techniques.
