NON TRAUMATIC FEMORAL ARTERY PSEUDO-ANEURYSM: A RARE PRESENTATION

  • Satya Prakash Meena

Abstract

A sixty-six years old male patient presented with left upper thigh pulsatile swelling for 5 months. He had no history of any trauma or chronic infection. All necessary investigations were done. The diagnosis was uncertain and could not differentiate between femoral artery pseudo- aneurysm and vascular soft tissue tumor. Intraoperative findings were suggested chronic pseudo-aneurysm of the femoral artery and diagnosis supported by histopathology. We concluded that chronic non-traumatic femoral artery pseudo-aneurysm is very rare and early surgery should be initiated to prevent complications.
