Postdialysis compartment syndrome is a rare but very devastating condition which needs emergent diagnosis and treatment. This can happen due to bleeding from puncture site due to inadequately applied pressure/coagulopathy. This case report illustrates a case of postdialysis pseudoaneurysm formation followed by forearm compartment syndrome. The patient was managed by emergency forearm fasciotomy and skin grafting along with rotation flap. This diagnosis should always be kept in mind when evaluating a patient with sudden onset of pain and swelling postdialysis. This will help in salvage of the patient's upper limb as well as of the precious arteriovenous fistula.
