• We report a case of abdominal aortic aneurysm with horseshoe kidney. The anatomic distribution of the renal vessels, the position of the thin portion of the isthmus of the kidney, and concern for the preservation of the sexual potency of the patient made standard aneurysm repair untenable. We describe a method of repair by exclusion of the aneurysm.
