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.
