Graft artery aneurysms though rare, may have devastating consequences. We present a case of an aneurysm involving the lower polar artery anastomosed to external iliac artery using a gonadal vein graft. The patient presented with sudden onset graft fossa swelling, pain, and decreased urine output. Color Doppler and computed tomography angiography helped in diagnosis and management. Since the majority of the graft was well-perfused by the upper polar artery, the patient underwent excision of the lower polar artery aneurysm. The prompt diagnosis and management salvaged the graft. This aneurysm presented after 10 years of the underlying importance of long-term surveillance.
