Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

Ureteral-iliac artery fistula is a rare condition. We perform a bibliographic review and report a case of ureter-iliac artery fistula reviewing its major differential diagnosis.

METHODS:

This case-study describes a patient with massive hematuria that presented a ureter-iliac artery fistula secondary to spontaneous rupture of an internal iliac artery aneurysm.

RESULTS:

86 -year-old male patient with history of previous surgery for aneurysm and ureteral catheterization.

CONCLUSIONS:

This difficult diagnosis should be thought of in a patient with massive macroscopic hematuria and previous vascular surgery. The treatment is always surgery.
