Persistent median artery (PMA) is an anatomical variation of the hand vascularity arising from brachial artery in early embryonic life. The presence and thrombosis of PMA may result in several complications such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Early diagnosis and treatment of acute thrombosis of PMA is important because many complications and the need for surgery can be prevented with early anticoagulation therapy. In this report, we present the findings of a thrombosed PMA causing wrist pain in a 37-year-old male. Early anticoagulant therapy provided a complete resolution of the symptoms.
