PMID:  3576455     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a case of a large iliac artery pseudoaneurysm in a newborn infant following umbilical artery catheterization. The aneurysm was excised and a primary repair was performed with limb salvage and reestablishment of normal blood flow to the foot. While these aneurysms are rare, prompt surgical repair should be performed as soon as the diagnosis is made because the associated mortality is high.
