Renal artery aneurysm (RAA) is rare and generally asymptomatic. Rupture, thrombosis and intra-renal embolism are complications of aneurysm, which can lead to renal infarction and haemorrhagic shock. Aneurysms are often discovered incidentally during imaging examinations or when investigating other diseases. Treatment is varied, ranging from endovascular techniques to open surgery and renal auto transplantation. We report the case of a young woman followed for a renal artery aneurysm that ruptured during vaginal delivery.
