The existence of traumatic arterial spasm in large arteries is questionable in current literature. We report a case of a 19-year old man with comminuted unstable femur fracture who presented with an ischemic foot. Localized arterial spasm was revealed in the middle portion of the superficial femoral artery triggered by the external pressure of a spicular bone segment was revealed by arteriography. Complete resolution of ischemic symptoms followed fracture reduction. Traumatic arterial spasm although rare does exist.
