Abstract

Vasculopathy is a well-recognized abnormality associated with neurofibromatosis type 1(NF1) and may cause stenoses, aneurysms and arterio-venous malformations. We report a challenging case of a woman with NF1, who presented with spontaneous rupture of a brachial aneurysm around her right elbow, on a background of previous debulking and soft tissue reconstructive surgery in the same arm. She underwent successful delayed reconstruction of the brachial artery using an autologous great saphenous vein graft.
