Asso­ciated com­pli­ca­tions are rup­ture, periph­eral embol­iza­tion and infec­tion.1-5 Com­plete occlu­sion of an abdom­inal ­aortic aneu­rysm by ­thrombus is ­extremely ­rare and con­sti­tutes a sur­gical emer­gency, ­with an esti­mated mor­tality of 50%.1-5 We ­report a ­case of a ­patient ­with ­this ­very ­uncommon com­pli­ca­tion of abdom­inal ­aortic aneu­rysm and ­review the lit­er­a­ture dis­cussing its ­optimal iden­tifi­ca­tion and man­age­ment.
