Abstract

Inferior vena cava (IVC) pseudoaneurysms are rare clinical entities with an uncertain natural history due to limited follow-up information. This case report describes a 30-year-old woman with two IVC pseudoaneurysms and their associated anatomy. It also details our treatment plan, with follow-up through radiographic resolution of the pseudoaneurysms. To our knowledge, this is the first case report to document a patient with two pseudoaneurysms of the IVC and full resolution treated by nonoperative management.
