A 66-year-old man with an abdominal aortic aneurysm confirmed by CT had bilateral swelling of the lower extremities with pain radiating to the back. Radionuclide venography and pulmonary scintigraphy demonstrated occlusion of the inferior vena cava and multiple pulmonary emboli, with a hot spot in the liver. Surgery revealed a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm that occluded the inferior vena cava, fistula formation, and extensive thrombosis of the inferior vena cava proximal to the occlusion site. Radionuclide venography was useful in detecting venous obstruction and the collateral formation represented by the hot spot in the liver as complications of the ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm, and in assessing the improvement of pulmonary embolism by medical therapy.
