The article provides a brief review of the literature on a rather rare pathology of the main veins - the popliteal vein aneurysm. The variants of the clinical picture, possible complications are described. Emphasis is placed on diagnostic methods and differential diagnosis of tumor-like formations of the popliteal region. Two own clinical observations with successful treatment of patients with this pathology are presented and analyzed. It is shown that active surgical tactics with reconstructive interventions provides a long-term positive result.
