Figure 1: Computed tomography (CT) showing abdominal aortic rupture into the tubercular paravertebral abscess. (A) Coronal view. (B) Sagittal view. (C) Volume-rendered CT reconstructions showing active contrast extravasation from the posterior wall of juxtadiaphragmatic aorta into the large paravertebral abscess (red arrow). Hyperdense contents (blood) noted in the abscess (asterisks). (D) Digital subtraction angiogram revealing active contrast extravasation from the abdominal aorta (red arrow). (E) Abdominal aortic stent graft was deployed with no contrast leak. (F) Follow up computed tomography after one month showing aortic stent graft with no leak.
