Abstract

Based on the observation of a cyst compressing the popiteal artery, the authors discuss the characteristic clinical picture and radiology of this benign neoformation. They emphasize two possible causes: cystic degeneration of the arterial median or a cyst of articular derivation. Histological data from this observation supports the second hypothesis.
