Arterial occlusive diseases are highly prevalent and constitute the leading overall cause of death. Adverse events are due to the effects of impaired circulation on critical end organs, namely the brain, heart, abdominal viscera or extremities. Acute thromboembolism remains a major surgical challenge. Even with optimal surgical management, acute lower extremity ischemia resulting from thromboembolic ds continues to cause significant morbidity and mortality. We report a case of thromboembolism of the left popliteal artery by an Ascaris worm in a patient with oriental cholangiohepatitis.
