Congenital aneurysm of palmar digital artery in an infant

Congenital aneurysm of palmar digital artery in an infant Aneurysm of the palmar artery is rare. We report a case of an aneurysm of the common palmar digital artery in an infant. The patient had no history of trauma, and the aneurysm may have been congenital in origin. In the case presented, microvascular reconstruction of the digital artery was carried out successfully, and the patient has been followed-up by MR angiography. Microsurgical techniques have been developed, and postoperative evaluation can be performed easily by MR angiography. Therefore, microvascular reconstruction is recommended in congenital cases. Considering the patient’s young age and the possibility of recurrence of vascular abnormalities or hand injuries in future, microvascular reconstruction should be considered to maintain normal blood flow. In congenital cases, long-term follow-up is needed. MR angiography is very useful because it is convenient, noninvasive, and is effective for evaluation of re-established blood flow.
