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.
