We decided to perform a CT scan that shows a liquid collection in retroperitoneum with no other important sign. Patient with no history of previous diseases, no trauma reported. We decided to perform a laparotomy, doing an incision in the midline infra umbilicus, we found all organs without pathology except for Meckel diverticulum that was not complicated, during the surgery we found a retroperitoneal hematoma in the right hemi abdomen that was temporally controlled, with no hemodynamic changes. We decide to perform a CT angiogram that shows a renal artery aneurism rupture, so we prolong the incision in the midline and we got access to the retroperitoneal region, finding a 2cm saccular renal artery with a rupture. A right nephrectomy was perform that involves this renal artery saccular region, a repair in vena cava was perform and an incidental appendectomy.
