SENEFONTE, Flavio Renato de Almeida et al. True aneurysm of medial plantar artery: case report. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.3, pp.266-269. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492011000300015.

Peripheral aneurysms deserve attention because of their low frequency and potential association with other aneurysms, especially of the abdominal aorta. The true aneurysm of the plantar artery is even less frequent. The literature available is scarce and focuses on cases of post-traumatic arterial pseudoaneurysms. In this paper, we report the case of an 85-year-old female patient with a one-year history of pain on the right foot when walking associated with a pulsatile tumor in the plantar region at the base of the big toe. The patient had no history of trauma or foot surgery. Vascular ultrasonography and MR angiography showed a plantar artery aneurysm. Aneurysmectomy with ligation of the medial plantar artery was performed. The patient had a good postoperative course.

Palavras-chave : peripheral arterial aneurysm; true arterial aneurysm of lower limbs; aneurysm of the plantar medial artery.
