Case 109


A 63 year-old controlled hypertensive male patient with a smoking history of 20 pack-years attended an appointment with an urologist due to benign prostatic hyperplasia. He brought a prostate ultrasound, which revealed enlargement of the gland, as well as a dilation of the abdominal aorta. A multislice computed tomography of the abdomen was then requested.


Based on the clinical history and images presented, how could we most appropriately manage this patient?
