Isolated dissection at the abdominal segment of the aorta is an extremely rare condition. Etiology is not clear; however, there are only a few cases in the literature reported to be spontaneous. In this report, we present a 61-year-old female patient with dissecting aneurysm of the infrarenal abdominal aorta who had been treated succesfully with replacement of the defective region of the aorta together with a brief review of the literature.
