The combination of abdominal aortic aneurysms and congenital anomalies of the inferior vena cava and its tributaries, such as double inferior vena cava, left-sided inferior vena cava, circumaortic renal collar, and retroaortic renal vein, are very rare but of clinical importance to vascular surgeons since these conditions can increase the difficulty of aneurysm resection as well as the risk of venous injury and subsequent excessive bleeding. This report describes a case of an abdominal aortic aneurysm with a left-sided inferior vena cava, and reviews of the incidence, diagnosis, and treatment of these conditions.
