Cystic adventitial disease of the popliteal artery (CADPA) is a rare vascular, non-atherogenic disease. In most cases it occurs in the popliteal artery, between media and adventitia of the arterial wall. A cyst is a one- or multi-compartment structure filled with gelatinous content. By direct compression it leads to the destruction of the arterial wall and by narrowing or closing an artery it causes limb ischaemia resulting in intermittent claudication. This paper reports the case of a 29-year-old male with CADPA of the left popliteal artery, diagnostic process and treatment history.
