Succes of hemodialysis program in pediatric cases depends on a good working vascular access. Results and complications of vascular access in children are similar with invasive vascular intervention in adults. We detected venous aneurysms secondary to arteriovenous fistula in our two pediatric cases. Two cases in pediatric age group with venous aneurysm secondary to arteriovenous fistula which are rarely seen in this age group were admitted to our clinic with complaints of pain, swelling and ischemia on arm. We repaired surgically venous aneurysm secondary to arteriovenous fistula in pediatric age group at early phase like in adults; for relief of complaints and preventing possible complications.
