While arterial aneurysm in the lower extremities is common, upper extremity aneurysms are relatively infrequent. Radial artery aneurysms are sometimes associated with trauma and connective tissue disorders. Very few cases of radial artery aneurysm have been reported in the literature. We have encountered a case of bilateral radial artery aneurysms in a 61 year old male. A review of the English language literature was performed using Pub Med database, resulting in 31 reported cases of radial artery aneurysms, with most cases being either traumatic or idiopathic in etiology. Of these reports, bilateral aneurysms had clear etiologies, including Marfan’s vasculopathy, granulomatous arteritis, arteriosclerotic disease and intra-arterial drug injection. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of primary bilateral radial artery aneurysms.
