The coexistence of horseshoe kidney and abdominal aortic aneurysm is rare and poses a technical challenge at the time of surgery. The preoperative diagnosis of this association facilitates surgical management. The case of a 75-year-old man with additionally progressive iliacal artery occlusive disease is presented. Even in cases without peripheral arterial occlusive disease angiography is indicated to define arterial supply of the horseshoe kidney.
