Abstract

Pseudoaneurysm of the lumbar artery is a rare complication of penetrating trauma. We present herein a case thought to have been caused by a blow to the left flank without any evidence of a stab wound. In this patient, the diagnosis of a first lumbar artery pseudoaneurysm with a retroperitoneal hematoma was confirmed by computed tomography (CT) findings, after which transcatheter embolization was successfully performed.
