Acute arterial occlusion may be caused by an embolus, thrombosis, or trauma. Vascular diseases can involve complications not limited to vascular-related areas and may require a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis and treatment. An overview of acute arterial occlusion is presented, as well as a case study of an atypical presentation of an arterial embolus of the lower extremity.
