Even with multislice computed tomography, it may be difficult to differentiate contained ruptured or leaking atherosclerotic aneurysm from a tender inflammatory aneurysm. The decision for early intervention is based on clinical judgment. We describe successful open graft repair of a tender inflammatory infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm simulating acute rupture in a 63-year-old man.
