          A case of a saccular aneurysm of the venous limb of an internal A-V fistula of the forearm is described. It developed a month after its creation and following the fourth dialysis. The mechanism of formation of the rare aneurysms of the venous limb central to arteriovenous fistulas is presumed to be increased blood pressure and flow of long duration. In this case, the cause is considered to be trauma by the needle during hemodialysis.
