Abstract

Superior mesenteric artery (SMA) aneurysm is the third most common splanchnic artery aneurysm. Unlike other splanchnic artery aneurysm, isolated aneurysms of the SMA branches are rare. They are usually asymptomatic and difficult to detect until they rupture and cause abdominal pain and hypovolemic shock. Thus, most cases are diagnosed after the occurrence of complications. In this report, we described a 76 year-old woman who had two saccular aneurysms in the superior mesenteric arterial branch(es). One of them was ruptured and partly thrombosed. The patient had acute renal failure secondary to massive intraabdominal hemorrhage.
