There are many etiologies of brachial plexus paralysis. They are dominated in adults by blunt trauma and wounds. We report the case of a 44-year-old patient who presented for a consultation with paralysis of the upper left limb that had progressed for four months. without any notion of trauma. The etiological assessment revealed a compressive pseudoaneurysm of the axillary artery secondary to Behcet’s disease. The revealing mode and the rarity of this etiology prompted us to report this interesting observation.
