A 64-year-old female presented with right digital artery emboli from biopsy-proven, angiographically typical, right brachial artery fibromuscular dysplasia (medial fibroplasia). Angiographic findings consistent with fibromuscular dysplasia were also found in the left brachial artery. The patient was treated with surgical excision of the abnormal right brachial artery segment and post-operative anticoagulation for 2 months. She remains asymptomatic at 22 months.
