Abstract

Leakage from abdominal aortic aneurysms often precedes rupture into the retroperitoneal space or an adjacent viscus. The present case is unique in that episodes of hematuria may be ascribed to bleeding from an arteriosclerotic abdominal aortic aneurysm drained by the patent ureteral stump remaining after a nephrectomy. Death was due to rupture of the aneurysm into an unusual site, the cecum.
