This report describes a challenging and unusual case of a 31-year-old man who consulted with varices and edema in his right lower limb. He had sustained an accidental stab wound to his right groin 15 years previously. Complete examination revealed a right femoral arteriovenous fistula associated with an arterial pseudoaneurysm and a giant iliac venous aneurysm. Due to the complexity of the lesions, we performed combined endovascular and open surgical repair. We describe the patient’s management and outcome.
