A rare cause of epigastric pain: isolated spontaneous dissection of the celiac artery, a case report



A rare cause of epigastric pain: isolated spontaneous dissection of the celiac artery, a case report



Journal des Maladies Vasculaires 34(4): 275-278



Spontaneous dissection of visceral arteries, and more particularly of the celiac artery, is a rare event. We report an exceptional case of an isolated spontaneous dissection of the celiac artery which occurred in a 53-year-old man seen in an emergency setting for suspected acute pancreatitis. Computed tomography enabled the diagnosis, revealing spontaneous isolated dissection of the celiac artery, associated with a small aneurysmal dilatation of the artery. Based on a review of the literature and this clinical experience, we recall the contribution of computed tomography and 3D reconstructions to the diagnosis, the therapeutic strategy and the follow-up of spontaneous dissection of visceral arteries.
