Aneurysms isolated to the deep femoral artery are unusual. Thirty-five cases have been reported in the world literature, however many of these were associated with aneurysms occurring elsewhere. Spontaneous rupture of true isolated deep femoral artery aneurysms is rare, with only a few reported cases. This report presents a case of a ruptured isolated true aneurysm of the deep femoral artery that was diagnosed by duplex ultrasound and treated with resection and end-to-end grafting.
