Inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm is an uncommon variant of abdominal aortic aneurysms. Thorough preoperative imaging of the extent of the aneurysm and inflammation and the associated complications are crucial in the management of this condition. We report a case of inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm where, after the initial contrast-enhanced CT, gadolinium-enhanced MR imaging was used to define the true extent of the inflammation and differentiate inflammation from mural thrombus at the iliac extension of the aneurysm. The imaging appearances are presented and the impact of MR imaging on further surgical management options including endovascular repair are discussed.
