Özet

Buerger's disease is characterized by multiple peripheral arterial occlusions in young, male smokers. It is rarely considered in the differential diagnosis of iliac artery occlusion. This report describes a patient with clinical, radiologic, and pathologic manifestations of Buerger's disease who underwent an axillofemoral bypass procedure because of left iliac artery occlusion in the presence of horseshoe kidney.
