Congenital true aneurisms of peripheral arteries especially on the hand are rare and idiopathic. The present case is focused on the multiple aneurysms of a young boy on both radial and ulnar arteries since birth. The clinical indications include painful ulcers on the right middle finger, discoloration and swelling of dorsum of ulnar side of right hand. In addition, patchy necrosis of fifth finger with increased intensity of pain was observed. Here we successfully treated both aneurysms with partial amputation of the digit and the growth of the skin on both sides of the palm was restored by groin flap.
