A case of ruptured femoral artery pseudoaneurysm
The present case has been reported in the journal Annals of Emergency Medicine.

A 63-year-old woman presented with a left-sided groin mass present for 2 months. It became larger and painful 1 month earlier after she lifted furniture. Her surgical history was notable for a remote left iliac endarterectomy.

She presented to the emergency department concerned that she had a hernia. A pulsatile, ecchymotic mass was found in the left inguinal region. Bedside ultrasonography revealed a 6-cm fluid collection about the common femoral artery.

CT angiogram demonstrated a 7.5-cm ruptured pseudoaneurysm of the left common femoral artery. She underwent open repair and hematoma evacuation.
