We report a case of fusiform type of abdominal aortic aneurysm which was found during the routine dissection of a cadaver, done for teaching the undergraduate medical students. The aneurysm was seen unruptured and positioned below the renal arteries, just above the aortic bifurcation. This study illustrates the microscopic and surgical anatomy of the aneurysm with added literature review and clinical implications. We believe that the knowledge of this vascular pathology will be enlightening for broad specialties of medicine and medical science researchers alike.
