We describe a case of an isolated aneurysm of the left hypogastric artery which came under our observation because of a syndrome of compression on the homolateral iliac vein. Having excluded the presence of aneurysms in other sites, it was decided to perform a percutaneous embolization of the hypogastric aneurysm. The follow-up revealed the disappearance of the compression on the ipsilateral iliac vein and a 30% reduction in the diameter of the thrombosed aneurysm. The method limited invasiveness, the reduction in volume of the aneurysmal mass, the disappearance of compression problems, and the shortened hospitalization time support the choice of embolization treatment.
