We report a case of a ruptured mycotic popliteal artery aneurysm as a consequence of septic embolization from infective endocarditis. The clinical presentation and radiological findings are presented. The popliteal, tibio-peroneal, and the antero-tibial arteries were reconstructed using an in situ bifurcated saphenous vein graft. Follow-up at 24 months disclosed a patent repair with normal ankle-brachial index.
