Aortic pseudoaneurysms are rare. When aortic pseudoaneurysms are detected, they demand timely surgical intervention because they trend to increase in size and cause complications. We experienced a rare case of a chronic traumatic pseudoaneurysm located at the distal descending aorta associated with chest pain during trans-urethral resection of the prostate under spinal anesthesia. Diagnostic testing led to appropriate management.
Key Words: pseudoaneurysm; spinal anesthesia
