The authors present a case of vertebral erosion in patient with concommitant abdominal aortic aneurysm. A 48-year old patient was admitted to the vascular surgery department in emergency mode with a ruptured aortic aneurysm. During the surgery an erosion anterior wall of the vertebral body caused by compression of the aneurysm sack was found.
