    Abstract

    Abdominal aortic aneurysms are rare in young women. We report the case of a 31-year-old woman who underwent open surgical repair of a symptomatic 7-cm abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). The patient had no identifiable AAA risk factors. Laboratory and pathological analyses demonstrated a nonspecific inflammatory component.
