Abstract: 

The popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) is an uncommon developmental abnormality, which comprises various anatomic variants causing compression of the popliteal artery.

Strenuous athletic activity can cause repetitive compression or micro trauma to the popliteal artery and may result in foot or calf claudication. Popliteal artery aneurysm, thrombosis, or thromboembolism may rarely occur which may mask the underlying pathology.

The first diagnostic technique of choice in patients with possible PAES should be duplex color Doppler ultrasonography with high-frequency transducers. Use of stress views-active plantar flexion and passive dorsiflexion of the ankle-increases the diagnostic accuracy. Classically, arteriography with the foot in the neutral position demonstrates abrupt medial deviation of the popliteal artery. In this article, we describe imaging findings in a young wrestler with complicated PAES.

As far as we know, this is the first reported case from Iran with PAES.
