We present the case of a 38-year-old man who was referred to the emergency department of our hospital because of sudden onset bilateral lower limb weakness and abdominal pain. He had no history of any disease.he was nonsmoker,nonalcoholic.he had no family history. A computerized tomography angiography of abdominal aorta and bilateral lower limb revealed the thrombosis of the abdominal aorta and of both iliac arteries.
