Periph­er­al arte­ri­al embo­lism aris­ing from a malig­nant tumor is an infre­quent man­i­fes­ta­tion of neo­plas­tic dis­ease and also a rare cause of acute arte­ri­al occlu­sion. A diag­no­sis of lower limb acute ische­mia in young ­adults could be over­looked ­because the con­di­tion is quite uncom­mon in this age group. A case of lower extrem­ities arte­ri­al embol­iza­tion from met­a­stat­ic lung can­cer of germ cell ori­gin is report­ed and the lit­er­a­ture is ­reviewed.
