Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


We present the case of a subclavian artery aneurysm, a rare clinical entity itself, in a patient with HIV infection. We discuss its initial presentation masquerading as a traumatic pseudoaneurysm, our evaluation, and treatment. Clinical and pathologic features in this case are discussed and compared with a review of the literature.
