While abdominal aortic aneurysms are quite common, visceral aneurysms are a seldomly diagnosed vascular pathology. Aneurysms of renal arteries, abdominal aorta and iliac arteries seem to be very rare. We present a patient after renal transplantation with aneurysms of both stumps of the renal arteries, abdominal aortic aneurysm and aneurysms of common iliac arteries. Because of the symptomatic course, the patient required urgent treatment. A successful endovascular procedure was performed. Follow-up imaging did not reveal any complications.
