Abstract

We present a rare case of saccular aneurysm localised in the arm of a breast-feeding baby, secondary to accidental arterial puncture. Colour Doppler echography showed a cystic lesion with turbulent arterial flow related to the humeral artery. Complete surgical resection of the aneurysm was achieved.
