Mycotic aneurysms of the popliteal artery are rare; 33 cases have been reported in the literature. The treatment of choice is a large excision with extra-anatomic revascularization. In situ revascularization is sometimes possible. To the best of our knowledge, tuberculosis has never been reported as a causal factor of mycotic aneurysms of the popliteal artery. We report a case of a recurrent tuberculous false aneurysm of the popliteal artery. After 2 attempts at in situ revascularization, the femoral artery was ligated with no distal ischemia.
