A 73-year-old female with severe sciatica suffered from an aneurysm of the left internal iliac artery. At first minimal caudographic abnormalities suggested intervertebral disc herniation and lumbar root compression but at exploratory surgery the diagnosis had to be rejected. Once the correct diagnosis was established by echography, CT-scanning and angiography surgical treatment of the aneurysm resulted in complete recovery. Because sciatic nerve lesions due to aneurysms in the pelvic region very seldom occur and may be the cause of diagnostic confusion, symptoms and treatment of these aneurysms are discussed.
