Chronic low back bain is a common cause of medical consultation, and is often associated with degenerative vetebral disease. Despite this, we must not forget other diseases even in those cases where the imaging tests may suggest chronic degenerative changes in the lumbar spine, including the possible presence of an abdominal aortic aneurysm with a contained rupture must be ruled out due to its prognostic and therapeutic implications. We present 5 cases of chronic low back pain associated with serious lytic lesions in the vertebral body due to chronic rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm.
