    We report a surgical case of 75-year-old man, who had an abdominal aortic aneurysm, complicated by right pelvic kidney. Abdominal computed tomography revealed that pelvic kidney was vascularized by 3 arteries: the first of three was from the aneurysm, second one was from the right common iliac artery, and the last one was from the left common iliac artery. The aneurysm was successfully replaced by a straight prosthetic graft without renal protection. Post-operatively, he had a transient rise in the serum creatinine level, which returned to baseline. He was discharged home with normal renal function.

    We report a rare case of venous aneurysm of upper extremity. The patient was a 71-year-old female. Her right median cubital vein had been dilated since she was about forty. Venous echography and computed tomography was useful for its anatomical diagnosis. Under local anesthesia, resection of venous aneurysm was performed. There was no inflammatory change or luminal thrombus. Pathological findings showed various thickening and thinning of the aneurysmal wall. However, the etiology was unknown. Surgical resection of venous aneurysms is useful because it is highly curable with low surgical risks.
