With increased use of renal angiography and ultrasonography, intrarenal aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations have been easily diagnosed. The authors report a case of small, bilateral intrarenal aneurysms with calcifications that were associated with a visible pulsatile wall motion recorded by M-mode ultrasonography. The finding of selective renal angiography was consistent with bilateral intrarenal aneurysms. Accelerated atherosclerosis and long-term history of hypertension were thought to have caused them.

    Hepatic artery aneurysms are rare vascular lesions, often with a nonspecific clinical presentation, and difficult to diagnose before rupture. We report the case of a patient with obstructive jaundice caused by a compression on the right biliary duct by a right hepatic artery aneurysm in which...

    We present the characteristic imaging findings of hypoplasia of the internal carotid artery (ICA) in two cases, one accompanied by an intracranial aneurysm. Finding of a diffuse luminal narrowing of the ICA on MR angiography or digital subtraction angiography (DSA) could wrongly evoke severe...

    Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) between the external iliac artery (AIE) and external iliac vein (VIE) after trauma is rare. Rarely, it occurs that fistula is accompanied by an aneurysm of external iliac artery. Two thirds of AVF occur after stab wounds, one third after puncture wounds and only one...
