Abstract: Splenic artery aneurysm was first described by Beaussier in 1770, and the first successful treatment was reported by McLeod in 1940. The splenic artery aneurysm is considered the most common splanchnic site for aneurysm formation, affecting 46 to 60% of patients with visceral aneurysms. Most patients are asymptomatic, and splenic artery aneurysm is often found during imaging investigation of other abdominal diseases. We describe an unusual case of a 31-year-old female patient with a large splenic artery aneurysm originating from the superior mesenteric artery.
