Differential diagnosis in angiographically found popliteal artery stenosis or occlusion comprises some distinct and clinically important entities that should be considered as management and prognosis may vary considerably. We present two patients with the final diagnosis of cystic adventitial disease of the popliteal artery and popliteal artery entrapment syndrome. Angiographic findings and the value of additional diagnostic imaging are discussed.
