Objectives: To report a rare case of an isolated common iliac aneurysm and review existing literature regarding contemporary options in its management.

Design: Case Report

Setting: Tertiary Training Hospital, Philippine Heart Center

Case Summary: Isolated iliac artery aneurysms are rare lesions that are difficult to detect and treat. With a 50% incidence of rupture, prompt diagnosis and timely intervention are essential. The present recommended therapy remains to be surgical repair but percutaneous techniques have recently been reported with varying results. We report a case of a 51-year-old male who was seen at the emergency room because of progressive left leg pains and subsequent complaints of flank pain and fever. Work-ups done revealed an isolated left common iliac artery aneurysm large enough to produce both neurologic and urologic signs and symptoms. Successful resection and anastomosis with an interposition graft provided relief of the symptoms. We likewise review the current literature and contemporary management of isolated iliac artery aneurysms.
