Deep femoral artery aneurysms (DFAA) are rare and their diagnosis is difficult in the early stage. We report a case of DFAA with rapid enlargement for three months. A 72-year-old man with chronic renal failure was admitted with a complaint of pain in the left medial thigh swollen. Computed tomography confirmed a left DFAA with diameter of 63 mm. Because magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) shows patency from superficial femoral artery to peripheral crural artery, we performed only resection of the aneurysm without re-vascularization of the distal deep femoral artery. MRI is useful to decide therapeutic strategy of DFAA.
