Inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysms (IAAAs) represent 3% to 10% of all AAAs. However, inferior vena cava occlusion secondary to an IAAA is rarely reported. We report a case of inferior vena cava occlusion secondary to an IAAA presenting deep venous thrombosis. As it is crucial to avoid pulmonary embolism and excessive blood loss during an operation, we pre-operatively implanted a venous filter and minimized intra-operative dissection that allowed successful operative repair.
