The patient was initially treated for osteochondroma as ruptured pseudoaneurysm was not suspected. Diagnosis of ruptured pseudoaneurysm could only be made intraoperatively when rent in the femoral artery was found along with surrounding hematoma and obstruction in the distal femoral artery. Patient underwent multiple surgeries (resection of osteochondroma and femoro-popliteal bypass) and recovered well with palpable pulsations in the operated limb.
