We report a patient who developed an aortic pseudoaneurysm in the L3-L4 disc space after lumbar disc surgery. The diagnosis was made by MRI and aortography, and repair using a prosthetic graft and anterior fusion was successful. We discuss the predisposing factors, the clinical picture and management of vascular injuries during disc excision.
