Abstract

We present a case of a ruptured popliteal aneurysm in the context of an E. Coli sepsis secondary to a gastrointestinal infection. The diagnosis was made on history and examination and was confirmed by Ultrasound, scintigraphy and CT scan. A broad debridement and revascularization by means of a femoral-popliteal bypass with the great saphenous vein was performed. The literature of infected popliteal aneurysms is discussed.
