An aneurysm is defined as a permanent dilation of an artery diameter more than 50% of its typical diameter. The aneurysm of the finger artery is a sporadic disease that divides into true and false types. A Pseudo-aneurysm of the finger artery is more prevalent than a true aneurysm; caused by penetrating trauma. A patient with a true aneurysm of the finger's artery without trauma history is reported. It was removed after proximal and distal control and heparin IV injection. The finger artery was micro-surgically repaired to maintain distal blood flow and prevent finger ischemia and adverse consequences in future trauma.
