False aneurysm and brachial plexus palsy complicating a proximal humeral exostosis

J Hand Surg Br. 1997 Jun;22(3):413-5. doi: 10.1016/s0266-7681(97)80416-0.

Abstract

An unusual case is described in which a false aneurysm of the brachial artery secondary to an exostosis of the proximal humerus caused a compressive lesion of the brachial plexus. Surgical treatment of the exostosis and the false aneurysm relieved the symptoms.
