Internal ­iliac ­artery aneu­rysms ­are dif­fi­cult to ­detect ­due to ­their ­wide ­range of clin­i­cal pres­en­ta­tions. The mor­tal­ity ­rate ­from rup­tured inter­nal aor­tic aneu­rysms is par­tic­u­lar­ly ­high in ­part ­because of ­delayed diag­no­sis. This ­report ­reviews ­the man­age­ment of a ­patient ­with a rup­tured inter­nal ­iliac ­artery aneu­rysm ­which pre­sent­ed mim­ick­ing a ­hip frac­ture.
