We report a case of spontaneous retroperitoneal hemorrhage from the lumbar arteries, who underwent an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair seven years before. Purulent effusion and fresh hematoma between the graft and the residual wall of AAA suggested some infection as a cause of this hemorrhage. After hemostasis, the previously implanted graft was completely replaced with a new graft that was covered with the large omentum. This is a very rare case with an unexpected retroperitoneal hemorrhage in the late term after an AAA surgery.
