DOI : 10.9739/tjvs.2021.792 Among all vascular aneurysms, the venous type is quite rare compared to the arterial type. Although this is the case, venous aneurysms can cause serious complications and even death. Most patients are asymptomatic; however, serious clinical indicators may occur including abdominal pain, gastrointestinal bleeding, venous occlusions, and pulmonary embolism. In this article, we present an 84-year-old male case of an inferior vena cava aneurysm presenting with a complaint of intermittent, non-specific abdominal pain in the right upper quadrant for the last couple of years.
