The authors present a case of a Baker's cyst in the right leg of an 86-year-old woman, whose presentation was more typical for a deep venous thrombosis. Both conditions have inflammation and acute calf pain. The clinical manifestations, imaging findings, and treatment of this common emergency department presentation are discussed.
