Ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurism with Atypical Manifestations; a Case Report
Iranian Journal of Emergency Medicine,
Vol. 5 No. 1 (2018),
AbstractAbdominal aortic aneurysm is a condition with a high mortality rate among those presenting to the emergency department. Its common symptoms include abdominal, back, and flank pain and hypotension and syncope are among its other manifestations. However, sometimes these patients present with uncommon manifestations. Considering this important point, we have introduced a patient with atypical manifestations in the present report. Initial diagnosis of this condition is based on high clinical suspicion and performing bedside abdominal ultrasonography. Diagnostic standard is abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan in patients with stable vital signs. The treatment is performing endovascular or open surgery and delay in treatment is accompanied with a high rate of mortality.
