Two cases of thromboangiitis obliterans of the iliac artery have been presented. The clinical as well as the pathologic and angiologic features concord in establishing such a diagnosis. The patients were young males with a history of smoking and calf claudication of two and one and a half years, respectively. Angiography did not reveal plaques or calcifications of the arteries. Hystological examination confirmed the diagnosis of thromboangiitis obliterans. While in one patient the disease was localized in the iliac artery only, so that a by-pass procedure could be successfully performed, the second patient had the occlusion along the main arteries of the limb, including the external iliac. The condition was recognized only during the operation. Reconstructive surgery was unsuccessful and the limb bad to be amputated. The literature on the subject has been reviewed.
