We report a case of arterial pseudoaneurysm over the lateral side of the ankle caused by plantar flexion-inversion injury and discuss the aetiology of this rarely seen complication. In the English orthopaedic literature, our case is the first of the very few previously reported cases with a similar aetiology which was examined and confirmed by colour Doppler ultrasound.
