Chronic leg ulceration affects 1–2% of the population and is associated with poor healing, frequent ulcer recurrence, and significant morbidity. Venous reflux can be identified in more than 70% of ulcerated legs. Coexistent arterial disease may be a factor in up to 20% of patients, but the clinical significance is poorly understood. We describe a patient who presented with a lower-limb ulcer, which was treated as a misdiagnosed case of venous ulcer for 12 years, following femoral pseudoaneurysm ligation.
