We report the case of a 41-year-old male with a left perforator vein aneurysm (PVA) in the popliteal fossa, with no local symptoms. Early diagnosis is necessary in order to prevent the thromboembolic events or other major complications. Duplex scanning and computed tomography (CT) scanning are considered to be important noninvasive diagnostic methods for the diagnosis of PVA. CT confirmed a fusiform PVA in the left popliteal fossa. Open tangential perforator vein aneurysmectomy was done through a posterior approach in the left popliteal fossa.
