Renal artery aneurysm is an uncommon pathologic entity, which is being detected in recent times with increasing frequency due to increased use of cross-sectional imaging modalities. Although often asymptomatic, spontaneous rupture can occur with catastrophic consequences. We report the case of a 44-year old patient referred to our facility for Computed Tomography Urography (CTU) on account of suspected nephrolithiasis with hydronephrosis and a diagnosis of extra and intraparenchymal renal artery aneurysms (RAA) was made.
