Abstract :
True atherosclerotic aneurysms of superficial femoral artery (SFA) are rare and often associated with other peripheral or aortic aneurysms.

We report the case of a 84-year-old patient presenting a giant degenerative ruptured aneurysm of the superficial femoral artery. The patient underwent successful aneurysm resection and bypass grafting, with a satisfying long-term follow-up and patency of the graft. The patient was also operated one year before, for a ruptured aneurysm of the abdominal aorta.

This case report is rare, because we described a case of patient with multiple atherosclerotic aneurysms, who present, for the second time, a life threating ruptured aneurysm. In this report, we see extreme and rapid evolution of SFA Aneurysm before being symptomatic.......
