Abstract

Spontaneous adrenal artery aneurysm rupture is an exceedingly rare but life-threatening condition that requires emergent treatment. We report on an 80-year-old male who underwent an emergent exploratory laparotomy and repair of a ruptured adrenal artery aneurysm and highlight the role of both vascular surgery and interventional radiology in the management of this scenario.
