The authors present two cases of impending rupture of abdominal aortic aneurysms correctly diagnosed by means of some unusual CT findings. The clinical signs were not clear. On CT examination, despite the absence of haematomas, minor, but precise, changes allowed the correct diagnosis: loss of definite contours of the aneurysm, non-homogeneous peri-aortic and peri- and para-renal adipose tissue, thickening of the renal fascia and a thin fluid collection over the psoas muscles.
