: We present a case of silent rupture of the renal artery aneurysm in a pregnant woman brought to the maternity hospital in shock. Renal artery aneurysms (RAA) are rare and account for 0.01-0.5% of all aneurysms with an incidence of approximately 0.09%. Rupture of the renal artery aneurysm is a rare and severe complication associated with extremely high morbidity and mortality in both mother and fetus. Thanks to the improvement and effectiveness of medical care in the 21st century, fetal mortality decreased by 70-80%, and 60-70 % for the mother. The essence of a successful management of this serious, life-threatening condition is a close cooperation between obstetricians, midwives, anesthesiologists, general surgeons, and vascular surgeons.
