Radiation-induced arterial disease is caused by significant atherosclerosis in the circumjacent vessels being irradiated. Even though this has been recognized as survival of cancer patients treated with radiotherapy improves, it is a problem that is often under-reported. We present a case of chronic thromboembolic occlusion of right common iliac artery in a 53-year-old woman who was treated with radiation therapy for cervical cancer 13 years ago. We initially performed percutaneous transluminal angioplasty with thrombolytic therapy, but had to cease thrombolytic therapy due to upper gastrointestinal bleeding of Dieulafoy's lesion, nevertheless, achieved good results after revascularization by Fogarty embolectomy.
