Abstract

Buerger's disease, or thromboangiitis obliterans, is a nonatherosclerotic, noninflammatory, segmentally occlusive disease of unclear etiology. We report a case of late-onset Buerger's disease in a 57-year-old man with erectile dysfunction, an uncommon symptom that occurred shortly after intermittent claudication.
