The optimal treatment for type II endoleaks remains unclear. The present report describes a case of ischemic skin ulceration after glue embolization of a type II endoleak with challenging access in a multiply comorbid 82-year-old woman with an expanding aneurysm sac 3 years after endovascular aneurysm repair. Embolization was performed from a proximal position with an n-butyl cyanoacrylate/Ethiodol mixture to allow flow into the endoleak because direct sac puncture was hazardous. One week after intervention, an eschar, which progressed to superficial necrosis as a result of partial nontarget delivery of sclerosant, developed over the left iliac crest. The eschar was self-limiting, with complete resolution by 6 months.
