Aneurysm of the abdominal aorta is a relatively rare condition. In a period of five years only two cases were observed. The condition may be diagnosed roentgenologically in a large percentage of cases. The roentgen criteria of a tumorous sac formation, calcium deposits in the sac, retroperitoneal mesial position of the tumor, a mass demonstrated to be outside of the gastro-intestinal organs, which cause pressure and displacement of the stomach; pressure erosive defects of the vertebra and an expansile tumor mass, are signs of aneurysm of the abdominal aorta. Two cases are reported with a survey of the literature.
