Abstract

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) is a disorder of the young age group characterized by ischemia of the lower extremities due to an abnormal association between the popliteal artery and adjacent musculotendinous structures. Several underlying anatomical abnormalities causing this syndrome are described and classified. In this study, we present an unusual case of PAES along with multidetector computed tomographic angiography findings.
