Abstract

Renal artery aneurysm is a rare entity, and patients are usually asymptomatic at the time of presentation. These aneurysms are rare among pregnant patients, especially after childbirth, and usually form due to changes in vascular wall integrity secondary to hormonal and hemodynamic changes. Here we describe a patient with an intraparenchymal renal artery aneurysm that ruptured after a cesarean section but was immediately identified and managed appropriately, allowing for a successful outcome.
