Acute arterial occlusion associated with an abdominal aortic aneurysm can occur as a result of acute thrombosis or embolism from a mural thrombus of the aneurysm. We report here a case of an unusual association between a seat belt injury and an acute ischaemic leg in a patient known to have an abdominal aortic aneurysm. We also demonstrate some difficult dilemma related to the use of anticoagulation in patients with multiple injuries.
