Abstract.

A case of ruptured adrenal artery aneurysm is presented. The ultrasound, computed tomography and selective renal angiography findings are described in detail. Aneurysms of adrenal arteries are particularly rare. Early diagnosis is important because of their tendency towards rupture and subsequent high mortality rate.

Key words: US – CT – Angiography – Aneurysm – Adrenal gland
