PALACIOS, Alberto et al. Hematuria after ureteral-iliac aneurysm rupture. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.3, pp.287-289. ISSN 0004-0614.

Objetive: Ureteral-iliac artery fistula is a rare condition. We perform a bibliographic review and report a case of ureter-iliac artery fistula reviewing its major differential diagnosis. Methods: This case-study describes a patient with massive hematuria that presented a ureter-iliac artery fistula secondary to spontaneous rupture of an internal iliac artery aneurysm. Results: 86 -year-old male patient with history of previous surgery for aneurysm and ureteral catheterization. Conclusions: This difficult diagnosis should be thought of in a patient with massive macroscopic hematuria and previous vascular surgery. The treatment is always surgery.

Keywords : Aneurysm; Artery-ureteral fistula; Hematuria.
