Upper extremity aneurysms are quite uncommon when compared to other peripheral arterial aneurysms. Among them, giant (>5 cm) subclavian artery aneurysms (SCAAs) are extremely rare. We report a case of giant SCAA measuring 8.8 cm in its maximal diameter with an updated review of literature. Our case is unique in view of surgical exposure method used (modified trapdoor thoracotomy with claviculectomy).
