Özet

Leriche's syndrome is characterized by chronic obstruction of the abdominal aorta and iliac arteries. A patient with Leriche's syndrome presented with twin pregnancy and severe preeclampsia at 32 weeks' gestation. Cesarean delivery was performed and the patient was admitted to the intensive care unit. Magnetic resonance angiography showed total occlusion of the distal abdominal aorta, common, and external iliac arteries. There were extensive collateral vessels between the lumbar arteries and iliolumbar arteries. The patient was discharged in an improved clinical condition. Leriche's syndrome and pregnancy demonstrating complete aortic, common, and external iliac artery occlusion is very rare in the literature. Despite complete occlusion, viability of the fetus can be achieved with collateral vessels.
