A 73-year-old man reported left low back pain worsening since 2 weeks. Ten days prior, he felt indefinable anxiety, which abated, but the back pain persisted. His diaphoretic and vasoconstrictive hands suggested hypovolemic shock. Emergency computed tomography revealed impending rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm. Emergent surgery saved his life.
