A case of intermittent claudication in a young male patient with short segment occlusion of popliteal artery is presented. Entrapment of the artery was recognised during attempted angioplasty by demonstration of extrinsic impression on the inflated balloon during forced plantar flexion. The importance of identifying this condition for definitive surgical management is stressed.
