The authors present a case of vertebral erosion in patient with concommitant abdominal aortic aneurysm. A 48-year old patient was admitted to the vascular surgery department in emergency mode with a ruptured aortic aneurysm. During the surgery an erosion anterior wall of the vertebral body caused by compression of the aneurysm sack was found. The evaluation of a patient with chronic back pain needs an exact clinical and radiological workup. Pre- and paravertebral structures as well as vertebral body should carefully be examined to diagnose other causes of pain.
