We report the treatment of a proximal ilio-iliac arterio-venous fistula and distal omolateral hypogastric artery pseudoaneurysm 23 years after incurring a gunshot wound in a 43-year old man presenting with lower back pain. No cardiac, pulmonary or omolateral lower limb alteration was observed. Endovascular exclusion of the arterio-venous fistula and pseudoaneurysm was performed, which included pseudoaneurysm embolization. Three procedure-related complications were registered. The follow-up at 12 months revealed stent grafts patency, pseudoaneurysm and fistula exclusion.
