True aneurysm of upper limb arteries is a rare entity with very few reported cases. Here, we report a case of true aneurysm of proximal radial artery starting from its origin at brachial artery bifurcation. A 50-year-old female presented with a painful pulsatile mass in the left cubital fossa of 1 year duration. Duplex examination revealed partially thrombosed large aneurysm of proximal radial artery. Aneurysmal segment was resected and end of distal brachial artery anastomosed end-to-end with ulnar artery. Radial artery was reconstructed with interposition reversed saphenous vein graft from side of brachial artery to end of radial artery.
