Aneurysms of the arterial system are rare in children. Aneurysms of the popliteal artery are extremely rare in the pediatric population; the majority of these occur after penetrating trauma. The authors report the presentation, evaluation, and successful surgical repair of a giant popliteal false aneurysm found in an 8-year-old girl presumably secondary to blunt trauma.
