A 15-year-old boy, with diaphyseal aclasis, presented with a two month history of a painful swelling in his left popliteal fossa, reportedly increasing in size.
Diaphyseal aclasis is a rare genetic skeletal condition due to developmental abnormalities of the growth plate causing multiple cartilage covered exostoses to form on the surface of the metaphysis or the adjacent diaphysis region of long bones.
This case illustrates a late presentation of a known complication associated with diaphseal aclasis. In this age group we present one of the largest, non-ruptured, popliteal pseudo aneurysms reported.
