Abstract: We treated a rare case of stasis ulceration of the leg due to surgically induced femoral arteriovenous fistula. The patient is a 24-year-old Japanese man who had poliomyelitis in his infancy and had a sequela of short left lower limb. At ten years of age he underwent surgical creation of a femoral arteriovenous fistula at another hospital to accelerate the bone growth. Although the operation was effective on the growth of the impaired extremity, stasis signs progressed in the left leg and an ulceration developed 14 years after operation. We closed the fistula restoring the arterial and venous continuities, which was followed by a rapid healing of the ulcer.
