Many car­di­o­vas­cular com­pli­ca­tions ­have ­been ­described in ­systemic ­lupus ery­them­a­tosus (SLE), how­ever, ­aortic involve­ment is ­very ­rare. We are ­reporting abdom­inal ­aortic aneu­rysm rup­ture in a 47-­year old ­woman ­with SLE. The ­patient was ­admitted to our hos­pital ­with ­severe abdom­inal ­pain. Emer­gency com­puted tomog­raphy of the ­abdomen dem­on­strated rup­tured abdom­inal ­aortic aneu­rysm. The res­to­ra­tion of ­aortic ­flow ­with vas­cular pros­thesis was per­formed in emer­gency. Post­op­er­a­tive ­course was ­uneventful.
