A 52-year-old female with arterial occlusive disease underwent an uneventful percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and placement of a vascular metallic stent in the left common iliac artery. Ten days later she presented with clinical symptoms of septic endarteritis. Shortly after re-admittance, an emergency laparotomy had to be performed because of an acute retroperitoneal bleeding. Rupture of the common iliac artery directly overlaying the penetrating stent was found but control of haemorrhage was of no avail. In this report of a case, septic endarteritis following placement of a vascular metallic stent preceded fatal rupture of the common iliac artery. This up to now unknown constellation requires surgical intervention without undue delay.
