Popliteal venous aneurysm diagnosed in primary care

A new case report in JMCR, ‘Diagnosing a popliteal venous aneurysm in a primary care setting‘ is one of the journal’s first to be written by general practitioners.

The report describes the case of a 68-year-old woman presenting to her general practitioner with a history of local discomfort and swelling in the right popliteal fossa, with pain during palpation. Colour Doppler ultrasonography revealed local widening and saccular dilatation in the right distal popliteal vein. Click here to read more.

We particularly welcome GPs to become involved with the journal – we know that the experience of family doctors is not often shared in the medical literature, and with JMCR and Cases Journal we offer a route for any patient’s story to be published.
