Background. We ­report ­one ­case of symp­to­mat­ic aneu­rysm of infra­ren­al abdom­i­nal aor­ta in a ­patient symp­to­mat­ic ­for ­acute abdo­men.
Methods. The ­patient ­was accept­ed at ­the Emergency Care Unit ­and ­the rou­tine admis­sion ­tests ­were tak­en. US of ­the abdo­men ­revealed a «Situs Viscerum Inversus Totalis» (­SVI) dis­po­si­tion of ­the ­organs ­and an aneu­rysm of ­the abdom­i­nal aor­ta ­below ­the ­renal arter­ies. Patient under­went an aor­to-aor­tic ­straight ­graft.
Conclusions. In ­this ­case-­report we ­show ­SVI can­not be con­sid­ered a prob­lem in ­the sur­gi­cal treat­ment of symp­to­mat­ic abdom­i­nal aor­tic aneu­rysms.
