A 22year old man with aortic aneurysm is presented. The diagnosis was incidental on abdominal ultrasound, as the pathology was not suspected. This case is presented because of the rarity of this pathology in this age group and race. The significance of ultrasound scan in the diagnosis of aortic aneurysm is emphasised. The various modalities of investigation and diagnostic difficulties in developing countries are highlighted.
