Case report of iliac artery pseudoaneurysm from the nephrectomized site of transplant kidney. Endovascular management of iliac artery pseudoaneurysm after transplant graft nephrectomy is rarely reported. Patient presented with abdominal pain and pulsating mass in the right lower abdomen. The diagnosis of pseudoaneurysm was made with computed tomography angiogram. Iliac artery stent graft across the aneurysm excluded the sac and treated the compressive symptoms of patient. The endografting decreases intimal hyperplasia and allowing vascular conduit for the lower limb. The endovascular stent-graft placement in iliac artery is a reasonable and durable alternative in selected patients.
