A 17-year-old man sustained a minor penetrating injury to his left foreman, resulting in false aneurysm formation. It is a generally rare unrecognized pathology. Complications are serious (embolism and thromboses of interdigital arteries). The diagnosis is based on the presence of a pulsatile mass, with finger dysesthesia. It is confirmed by duplex Doppler. Surgical treatment was resection of aneurysm hull completed by direct suture arterial tear.
