Aneurysms of the hypogastric artery are rare occurrences that are frequently asymptomatic until the time of rupture. When signs and symptoms are present, a pulsatile pelvic mass, frequently detected by rectal or vaginal examination, may produce compression symptoms with urologic, gastrointestinal, and neurologic manifestations. In addition to classical invasive methods of detection such as angiography, newer noninvasive imaging techniques, including ultrasonography, computerized tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging, may be employed to establish the diagnosis. Proximal ligation of the hypogastric artery is the usual method of treatment. A case of bilateral, giant hypogastric artery aneurysms with successful surgical management is reported.

    Takayasu aortitis (TA) is a chronic inflammatory and fibrotic vasculitis of large- and medium-sized arteries. Early stages of the disease show a panarteritis and inflammatory wall thickening of the aorta and its branches, whereas advanced (fibrotic) stages comprise stenosis, aneurismatic...
