An 82-year-old male reported a fall and axillary contusion with a walking aid (crutch) that he carried. He described a right axillary tumor (Fig. 1A) as well as functional loss of the right hand. Physical examination demonstrated a pulsating axillary mass and sensorimotor paralysis of the radial, median and ulnar nerves. CT angiography and intraoperative angiography showed a 43mm right axillary artery pseudoaneurysm (Fig. 1B-arrow and C). A coated stent was implanted, and the residual hematoma was drained to decompress the plexus. Post-traumatic pseudoaneurysm of the axillary artery is a very rare entity that is usually caused due to fractures and dislocations of the glenohumeral joint.
