Abstract Background Aneurysms of the peroneal artery are infrequent and consist mainly of pseudoaneurysms. Case presentation This report describes an unusual case of peroneal pseudoaneurysm developing after thromoboembolectomy with a Fogarty catheter. It was managed successfully using an endovascular technique consisting of selective catheterization and coil embolization. The coils were placed in the peroneal artery, both proximal and distal to the pseudoaneurysm. Conclusion Endovascular technique can be successfully used to treat pseudoaneurysms in difficult settings.
