Renal artery aneurysm (RAA) rupture during pregnancy is a rare but life-threatening event and few cases have been reported in literature. Currently the best approach, endovascular or surgical, seems to be under discussion. A case of a 31-year-old woman with a symptomatic right RAA detected three days after childbirth is reported. A successful endovascular repair by a covered stent-graft was performed.
