Abstract

Pseudoaneurysm of the anterior tibial artery is a rare cause of pain and swelling of the lower leg and the foot following minor sports injuries. When there is no definite musculoskeletal cause of pain, it is important to consider pseudoaneurysm. Early diagnosis and management are essential for the successful outcome. MRI and angiogram are useful for early diagnosis. We report a case of pseudoaneurysm of the anterior tibial artery following minor sports injury. The patient experienced complete relief of the symptoms after resection of the pseudoaneurysm.
