Congenital atresia of the common iliac artery is rare. A case of atresia of the left common iliac artery in a 40-year-old mother of three which was complicated by saccular aneurysm of the terminal abdominal aorta is reported. Radiological investigations revealed massive and complete thrombosis of the aneurysmal sac. Atresia of the proximal left common carotid was confirmed at surgery. Postoperative follow-up radiological investigations show return to normal caliber of the abdominal aorta.
