Spontaneous rupture of mesenteric vasculature associated with fibromuscular dysplasia is an unreported phenomenon. We describe a case in a 28-year-old male with a history of chronic abdominal pain who presented to our facility in hemorrhagic shock secondary to a ruptured transverse mesocolon middle colic aneurysm status postemergent transverse colectomy. He was found to have chronic vertebral, renovisceral, and iliac aneurysms as well as acute superior and inferior mesenteric artery dissection and chronic bilateral vertebral artery dissections. He subsequently developed disseminated intravascular coagulopathy, resulting in saddle pulmonary embolus as well as right renal artery and splenic artery thrombosis. Ultimately, the patient expired.
