Abstract

We report a case of a 55-year-old male who was diagnosed with the adductor canal compression syndrome
– a rarely described nontraumatic disorder of the lower limb resulting from the external compression of the
superficial femoral artery in the adductor canal, that may present with the symptoms ranging from intermittent
exercise-induced claudication up to arterial obstruction and critical limb ischemia.
