True aneurysms of the anterior tibial artery are rare with less than 20 published reports in the literature. We report an urgent endovascular repair of a true anterior tibial artery aneurysm in a patient with Ehlers-Danlos type IV, vascular type. This approach resulted in an uneventful recovery without the elevated risks associated with open vascular repair in the setting of connective tissue disorder. Continuous follow-up in the subsequent 4 years has demonstrated durability and efficacy of the original intervention.
