Traumatic arterial vasospasm with no surrounding anatomic damage is a rare finding. Delayed presentation of arterial vasospasm several days from the inciting event is also rare. However, when the diagnosis of arterial vasospasm is considered, evaluation and treatment must be initiated promptly to avoid prolonged ischemia to the extremity. We present an 11-year-old female who presented with a delayed presentation of arterial vasospasm, and also review the literature.
