Spontaneous tear of an aneurysm of inferior vena cava. Discovered by Dr Hoa Nguyen Thi Thanh
A 92 year old woman patient who was admitted to the emergency room of Thu Duc hospital because of abdominal pain and unstable blood pressure (a state of shock). On CT scan, her inferior vena cava has been ruptured spontaneously at a level of renal vessels forming a haematoma caused the forward displacement of left kidney vein. It means that the renal veins were lifted off due to an underlying haematoma. In practice, we found that the spontenous rupture of IVC is so rare. The rarity of this condition prompted us to post this case.
We are thankful to Dr Hoa, Nguyen Thi Thanh who discovered this problem last week.
