Spontaneous laceration of infrarenal aorta not associated with trauma, aneurysm, infection or penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer is a rare and scarcely know event. This is a very original condition never described before in association with a metatastic cancer. The spontaneous rupture of infrarenal aorta, although rare, must be considered in differential diagnosis with other causes of abdominal or lumbar pain, even in the presence of a known diagnosis plausible with lower back pain, as in this case. It is a life-threatening condition for which emergency diagnosis and suitable treatment are indicated, despite the comorbity.
