Isolated internal iliac artery aneurysms affected 0.1% of the population and account for approximately 1% of aortoiliac aneurysms. They are bilateral in half the cases. Fusiform aneurysms are the most common presentation and they are frequently associated with atherosclerotic disease. Internal iliac aneurysms are usually asymptomatic, except when there is rupture, with a related high risk of mortality. They can be diagnosed by ultrasound, computed tomography, angioresonance and angiotomography (the gold standard exam). Surgical repair of iliac artery aneurysms is indicated for those that had significant expansion, diameter higher than 3 centimeters and for symptomatic cases. We report the case of a 69-year-old hypertensive patient with an incidental finding in abdominal ultrasound exam of bilateral aneurysm in the internal iliac arteries, both with surgical indication. Was performed endovascular treatment in two successive stages, first with preservation of the right internal iliac artery followed by embolization of the left internal iliac artery.
