Subclavian artery aneurysms are uncommon. The most common causes of these aneurysms are atherosclerosis. Mitotic and traumatic pseudo aneurysm. We report a case of rare left subclavian artery ruptured aneurysm. Diagnosis with CT aortography and treatment with resection with bypass grafting or ligation when there are good collaterals are the optimal approaches to avoid life-threatening and limb-threatening ischemia.

KEY WORDS: subclavian artery aneurysm, diagnosis, surgical treatment, ligating operations, prosthetic repair.
