A unique case of isolated, spontaneous, symptomatic celiac trunk dissection

A unique case of isolated, spontaneous, symptomatic celiac trunk dissection

Sage Open Medical Case Reports 3: 2050313x14565423

Cases of isolated spontaneous celiac trunk dissections have been appearing in the literature more recently with the increased availability of high-resolution computerized tomography angiograms. We report a unique case of this entity. A 48-year-old woman presented with acute abdominal pain that radiated to the back and worsened with breathing. This was diagnosed as a celiac trunk dissection by computerized tomography angiogram. She was treated conservatively with antihypertensive medications, anticoagulants, and opioid medication for pain control.
