Pseudoaneurysm of the dorsalis pedis artery (DPA) is an extremely rare entity that most commonly occurs secondary to trauma or surgery. All reported cases describe surgical treatment. We illustrate a case of enlarging DPA pseudoaneurysm causing pain and disability in a 49-year-old woman who was treated with transcatheter embolization and pseudoaneurysm aspiration resulting in near-immediate resolution of symptoms.
