Pseudoaneurysms of brachial artery are rare cause of upper limb mass. Their diagnosis is straightforward in the setting of a rapidly growing pulsatile soft tissue mass with bruit or distal limb ischemia. We hereby present a case of hard nonpulsatile left upper limb soft tissue mass in a 50-year-old female. Mass of 5-year duration was misdiagnosed clinically as soft tissue neoplasm and underwent trucut biopsy. The case came out to be a large pseudoaneurysm of brachial artery and was successfully excised.
