We present a case of catheter induced pseudoaneurysm of femoral artery and postprocedural course. This type of complications occurs in 2% to 8% patients after interventional procedures via trans femoral access and and has overall trend of increase due to significant number of this procedures in diagnostic and interventional cardiology. A 74-year-old female was admitted to Vascular department complaining of severe pain in her left groin. On physical examination, there was a femoral mass palpable but non-pulsatile in her left groin. Color Doppler documented the presence of femoral pseudoaneurysm as well as "to-and-fro" flow pattern on the pseudoaneurysm neck. CT arteriogram showed pseudoaneurysm with mostly thrombosed cavity, diameter of 85 x 27 mm. We concluded for further surgical repair.
