Abstract
True aneurysms of the digital artery are very rare. Sixteen cases of true digital artery aneurysms have been reported in English literature since 1982. We present a true aneurysm of the digital artery of the third finger which is the largest aneurysm have been reported so far. In operation, the third finger ulnar digital artery aneurysm was clamped and excised. Reconstruction was performed with an inter positional vein graft. At follow-up 12 months after surgery, the patient had no pain or swelling in the third finger. In this study, we aimed to present an extremely rare case of a digital artery aneurysm that reached a large size rapidly.

Key words: Digital artery, third finger, true aneurysm
