All symptoms are important; it would be a serious mistake to underestimate those that appear slight or more commonly associated to a pathology with a favorable outcome. An accurate clinical examination and an appropriate laboratory and instrumental assessment can show an important and potentially dangerous pathology that otherwise would not be recognized or diagnosed late. In this article the Authors demonstrate how an “innocent” symptom, such as the lumbar pain, adequately investigated with a radiological test, allowed them to detect an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm, a disease with fatal outcome if not treated appropriately.
