We present a case of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm with left-sided inferior vena cava. An 82-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with a sudden onset of severe abdominal pain and loss of consciousness. Computed tomography revealed rupture of an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm and a left-sided inferior vena cava. At surgery, the inferior vena cava was found to cross anteriorly over the abdominal aorta at the usual level of the renal vein. Graft replacement was successfully performed, with careful mobilization and retraction of the inferior vena cava. The patient had an uneventful postoperative course without any deterioration of renal function.
