We report the case of a 28-year old woman with an unusual presentation of peripheral arterial occlusive disease clinically characterized by intermittent claudication and bilateral, focal stenoses of the iliac arteries without signs of atherosclerosis in other vascular beds. The successful percutaneous intervention is described in detail and pathogenetic aspects of the disease are discussed.
