We present the case of a female with history of a ruptured lumbar aneurysm years ago. She was known to have neurofibromatosis type I with the typical clinical signs. The patient was transferred to us with a hematothorax and an aortic lesion was suspected on the outside CT scan. Reevaluation of the investigation raised suspicion of a ruptured intercostal artery aneurysm, which was consequently demonstrated on angiography. The aneurysm was embolized and the patient recovered uneventful. We will discuss the optimal therapy for vessel lesions in neurofibromatosis type I.
