Reported here is a case of 1-year-old male child who presented with huge abdominal mass, which on radiological investigation was diagnosed as retroperitoneal pseudoaneurysm of the aorta. On exploration, it was found to be a true aneurysm of infrarenal abdominal aorta with inflow agenesis. Aneurysm was excised, and aorta was reconstructed with 10 mm Dacron graft. Postoperative computed tomography angiography showed patent graft with good distal runoff. Literature review revealed that only 26 cases of congenital abdominal aortic aneurysm had been reported so far. None of them had inflow agenesis which can give false impression of pseudoaneurysm on preoperative evaluation. The case highlights the utility of additional complimentary investigations such as Doppler study in clinching diagnosis and helping plan and execute successful treatment in the difficult diagnostic scenario.
