Congenital anomaly of the iliac arteries is rare, and, given that patients are generally asymptomatic, diagnosis in the newborn period is difficult. Herein is presented the case of a newborn with bilateral hypoplasia of the common iliac arteries, seen on multi-slice computed tomography while investigating the absence of femoral pulse. This anomaly is a rare cause of absence of femoral arterial pulse.
