Spontaneous nonaneurysmal rupture of the aorta is a life-threatening condition for which emergency diagnostic and therapeutic measures are indicated. An asymptomatic spontaneous aortic rupture was unexpectedly discovered adjacent to the visceral aorta. We diagnosed the mass as a pseudoaneurysm, and surgery was performed. This was the first reported case of asymptomatic spontaneous rupture of a nonaneurysmal visceral aorta.
