A patient with a previously questionable right common iliac aneurysm later presented with an arterio-venous fistula, embolus to the right femoral artery and an ischemic right leg following blunt trauma from a seat belt injury in an automobile accident. His preoperative, operative, and postoperative problems and findings are discussed. In the relatively small number of arterio-venous fistulas of major abdominal vessels described in the literature, none have presented in this manner, or been apparently secondary to seat belt blunt trauma.
