A 61-year-old male presented to our hospital complaining of claudication: bilateral leg weakness impeding mobility. Symptoms started after 100 m of walk and recede after several minutes of rest. The patient was obese, with a body mass index (BMI) of 41 kg/m2 and reported a weight gain of about 55 pounds in the last year. Patient's comorbidities were dyslipidemia, hypertension, and antithrombin III deficiency. The patient also suffered from chronic low-back pain recently worsened and cervical pain. Pulses in the lower limbs were present. Neurological examination was also unremarkable.
