She previously underwent surgical excision of the exostosis from her left distal femur and proximal tibia. Left leg pain occurred with swelling 9 months after surgery, and radiographic examination revealed the popliteal artery pseudoaneurysm with an extensive destruction of the femur. In young patients, a non-traumatic pseudoaneurysm of distal femoral artery may be a complication of an exostosis, and those aneurysms may very rarely destruct the femur.
