Peripheral traumatic arteriovenous fistulas are common in war but rare in peacetime. A traumatic case of posterior tibial arteriovenous fistula caused by an accidental flying piece of steel is reported. Some pathogenic, diagnostic and therapeutic points of arteriovenous fistulae of the tibial vessels are discussed.
