Pseudoaneurysm of brachial artery following whole blood donation is a very rare complication due to inadvertent arterial puncture. There are only a few cases reported in literature. Here, we describe this rare event in a young male whole blood donor presenting 2 months after blood donation with pulsatile swelling in the right antecubital fossa and paresthesia of hand. He was successfully managed with surgical intervention.
