The rates of renal transplant for end stage renal disease are increasing worldwide. Vascular complications due to arterial thrombosis is seen only in less that 1% cases. We describe a case of 36 year old male who underwent a live-related renal transplant, whose post-operative period was complicated by juxta-anastomotic distal external iliac artery thrombosis. He was managed by thrombectomy and improved with complete recovery. Attention should be paid to anastomotic technique and prevention of formation of intimal flap. In case of arterial thrombosis, graft salvage can be attempted depending on the clinical scenario.
