Purpose: Cystic adventitial artery disease is an uncommon non-atherosclerotic peripheral vessel disease. Furthermore cystic adventitial disease of the common femoral artery is an extremely rare entity. We report the case of a 54 year-old man complaining of intermittent claudication who was referred to our vascular service.Methods and Results: Doppler ultrasound and multidetector-row computed tomography (CT) with 3-dimensional volume rendering revealed severe stenosis with cystic an adventitial cyst in the common femoral artery. Intra-operative Doppler ultrasound showed the cyst to be multilocular type. Reversed great saphenous vein interposition was successfully placed.Conclusion: Removal of cyst together with artery and interposition using reversed great saphenous vein is the optimal treatment procedure to prevent recurrence.
