We report a case of a late complication following an aortic graft replacement in a 69-year-old lady who presented with huge pseudoaneurysm from retroperitoneal tunneled thoracofemoral Dacron graft performed 22 years earlier. The pseudoaneurysm was treated by hematoma evacuation and the Dacron graft was replaced by an interposition PTFE bifurcated graft. The patient made an uneventful recovery.
