LICHTENFELS, Eduardo; FRANKINI, Airton D.; BECKER, Aline S.  and  PIRES, Vinícius C.. Monckeberg's arteriosclerosis as a cause of lower limb critical ischemia: case report. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2007, vol.6, n.1, pp.97-100. ISSN 1677-5449.

Monckeberg's arteriosclerosis can be a rare cause of severe lower limb ischemia. We report the case of a patient with critical lower limb ischemia without revascularization conditions progressing to limb amputation. The patient did not present any traditional risk factors associated with atherosclerosis. Histopathological diagnosis showed arteriosclerosis associated with Monckeberg's medial calcification.

Keywords : Monckeberg medial calcific sclerosis; ischemia; lower limb.
