Few cas­es of sub­ren­al abdom­i­nal aor­tic aneu­rysm are report­ed in the lit­er­a­ture in ­patients ­with ectop­ic pel­vic kid­ney. The sur­gi­cal ­repair of ­these ­lesions can be tack­led by per­fus­ing the kid­ney ­with ­cold iso­elec­tro­lyte solu­tion dur­ing aor­tic clamp­ing. The ­authors ­report a ­case of sub­ren­al abdom­i­nal aor­tic aneu­rysm asso­ciat­ed ­with ectop­ic pel­vic kid­ney in ­which ­this ana­tom­i­cal vari­a­tion togeth­er ­with the mor­phol­o­gy of the aneu­rys­mat­ic ­lesion ­made it oblig­a­to­ry to use a spe­cial pros­thet­ic recon­struc­tion.
