Bilateral common iliac artery endofibrosis in a recreational cyclist – case report and review of the literature

Abstract

External iliac artery endofibrosis is a rare medical condition typically encountered in young endurance athletes, mainly cyclists. Iliac endofibrosis usually develops in the external iliac artery and is rarely seen in the common iliac or in common femoral arteries. We describe a unique case of a patient who was not a professional or high-endurance cyclist. The lesions in our case appeared to be bilateral in the common iliac arteries and was not limited to the external iliac artery as most commonly described. We present an overview of the literature regarding this medical condition.
