Vascular anatomy has a strong influence on the choice of surgical approach. Anomalies of vascular patterns may explain uncharacteristic physical or clinical findings. We present a case of an anomalous peroneal artery not previously described. The anomalous anatomic pattern is the peroneal artery replacing the posterior tibial artery in the medial ankle and providing the primary blood supply to the plantar foot.
