A case of right renal artery distal aneurysm associated with juxtarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm in a 75-year-old male, who presented with abdominal and back pain and chronic renal failure, is reported. The abdominal aortic aneurysm was repaired with a bifurcated Dacron graft. The right kidney was simultaneously explanted, ex vivo reconstruction of the renal artery with PTFE graft was performed, followed by autotransplantation of the kidney into the right iliac fossa. In the postoperative course the renal function returned to normal.
