Abstract
Cirsoid aneurysm, an uncommon abnormal either congenital or acquired arteri ovenous communication, is described. As massive life-threatening bleeding c an be a consequence, diagnosis is very important. Earlier, angiography was the only imaging method available for visualizing vascular lesions and rece nt developments in imaging techniques have made diagnostic imaging of cirso id aneurysms possible using ultrasonography, color flow mapping, magnetic r esonance imaging and magnetic resonance angiography. In this report, a pati ent with intrapelvic cirsoid aneurysm posthysterectomy who died 8 h after s he had been kicked in the abdomen is described and the results obtained by various imaging techniques are discussed.
