A case of a true aneurysm of the anterior tibial artery without penetrating trauma is reported. Interposition of a venous graft could not be attempted to maintain continuity of the anterior tibial artery after resection of the aneurysm and after the artery was ligated. Progressive gangrene of the toes necessitated transmetatarsal amputation which subsequently healed well. The case is reported because of its rarity and problems of management. Differing opinions in the management of peripheral aneurysms are discussed.
