We present a case of aortocaval fistula (ACF) secondary to spontaneous rupture of an atherosclerotic infrarenal aortic aneurysm into the inferior vena cava that was initially diagnosed with computed tomography (CT). This is believed to be the first report of this condition with CT demonstration of the exact site of fistula and CT-pathologic correlation. We retrospectively reviewed the CT findings of another two cases of ACF and the previous literature. © 1995 Springer-Verlag New York Inc.
