Abstract Aneurysmal disease can occur in any vessel in the body and occur most commonly the aorta, cerebral and popliteal arteries; however, aneurysms of the digital artery remain a rare presentation. They form an important differential diagnosis in any patient presenting with a mass in the hand. This report presents the case of a 64-year-old man with a true aneurysm of the common palmar digital artery who underwent successful repair, following excision and end to end anastomosis. Only 21 cases of true digital artery aneurysm have been reported; we review the literature pertaining to the diagnosis and management of digital artery aneurysms since they were first described by Baruch et al in 1977.
