Diagnosis of an isolated external iliac artery aneurysm is rendered extremely diffucult. A 69 years old female who had external iliac artery pseudoaneurysm and vesical fistula and who had had progressively symptomatic urinary bleeding was admitted to our clinic. Arteriography revealed an aneurysm of the right external iliac artery with compression of the vesica. Ultrasound and computerised tomography showed right external iliac aneurysm. Cystoscopy revealed active bleeding. Arteriography revealed an aneurysm of the right external iliac artery with compression of the vesica. Patient did well postoperatively and was discharged. We suggest that definitive treatment is open surgery like this life-threatening external iliac artery pseudoaneurysm and vesical fistula.
