A 42-­year-old wom­an com­pli­cat­ed ­with neu­ro­fib­ro­mat­o­sis under­went ­both bal­loon per­cut­ane­ous trans­lu­mi­nal angio­plas­ty (PTA) of the ­iliac ­artery and femor­o­pop­li­teal (FP) ­bypass graft­ing for crit­i­cal low­er ­limb ische­mia. Seven ­months ­after the ­initial inter­ven­tion, a recur­rence of sten­o­sis in the ­iliac ­artery and at the anas­to­mos­es of the FP ­bypass neces­si­tat­ed ­both PTA and a ­repeat throm­bec­to­my and final­ly result­ed in the ampu­ta­tion of her ­left ­thigh. This is a rare­ly doc­u­ment­ed ­case of chron­ic arte­ri­al occlu­sion asso­ciat­ed ­with neu­ro­fib­ro­mat­o­sis, in ­which the prog­no­sis of arte­ri­al recon­struc­tion for ­such ­patients is sug­gest­ed to be ­poor.
