Multiple arterial aneurysms.


An 8 1/2-yr-old boy presenting with excruciating abdominal pain had two abdominal aortic aneurysms excised. Angiography demonstrated additional aneurysms of the right brachial artery, right renal artery, right internal iliac artery and multiple aneurysms of the right popliteal and tibialis posterior arteries. The patient does not suffer from any of the conditions generally recognized to be associated with aortic and multiple arterial aneurysms. No similar case could be found in the English language literature.
