Femoral artery aneurysm (FAA) is a rare peripheral vascular aneurysm that can lead to thrombosis, embolism and fatal rupture in untreated cases. The clinical presentation of FAA varies from the finding of an asymptomatic mass on routine physical examination to acutelimb-threatening ischemia. Presently, a case of FAA that caused deep vein thrombosis and compartment syndrome has been described. Although the current treatment method recommended for FAA is an open surgical procedure, in this case, an endovascular intervention was performed due to high risk of surgical mortality.

Keywords: Compartment syndrome, covered stent; deep vein thrombosis; femoral artery aneurysm.
