Profunda femoris artery pseudoaneurysms (PFAPs) have been described as an iatrogenic phenomenon, principally following orthopedic procedures and open or closed trauma to the upper thigh, although remain rare. The diagnosis of PFAPs is challenging and often delayed due to the nonspecific manner of the presentation with clinical features including pain, swelling, and unexplained anemia as demonstrated in this case report of a PFAP following a stab injury to the thigh. The use of computed tomography angiography (CTA) or transcatheter angiography allows for early accurate diagnosis and treatment of vascular complications secondary to trauma, especially when there is concern of vascular injury and possible pseudoaneurysm formation in the clinical context.
