Not usually: Peripheral vascular disease is most commonly caused by hardening of the arteries from cholesterol deposits and that shouldn't cause anemia. There are a few unusual causes of peripheral vascular problems from rheumatologic diseases which can be associated with anemia but even if you have both, more common causes of anemia need to be ruled out before assuming they are related.
