Many cardiovascular complications have been described in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), however, aortic involvement is very rare. We are reporting abdominal aortic aneurysm rupture in a 47-year old woman with SLE. The patient was admitted to our hospital with severe abdominal pain. Emergency computed tomography of the abdomen demonstrated ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. The restoration of aortic flow with vascular prosthesis was performed in emergency. Postoperative course was uneventful.
