ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Celiac, Abdominal Aorta, & Common Iliac Aneurysms

History: A 75-year-old white man with a history of smoking and mid-abdomen pain.

Findings: The axial CT image demonstrates a 2.4-cm fusiform aneurysm of the celiac artery. The origin of this aneurysm is patent. Also seen within the celiac aneurysm is an extensive mural thrombosis in the distal half of the aneurysm. The splenic and gastroduodenal arteries are patent. There also is a fusiform infrarenal aortic aneurysm identified measuring 4 cm. There is also an intimal flap along the abdominal aortic vasculature. The aorta returns to normal diameter of 2 cm just prior to the bifurcation of the common iliac arteries. In addition there is also a distal left common iliac artery dilation with a diameter of 1.5 cm.

Ddx: • Celiac, Abdominal Aortic, Common Iliac Aneurysms: - Atherosclerotic - Inflammatory - Mycotic / Infectious - Arteriovenous Malformation - Traumatic

Dxhow: CT with contrast - Imaging

Exam: Mid-abdomen pulsatile mass with deep palpitation.

No MeSH data available.


Axial CT w/ contrast shows abdominal aorta returning to normal size of approx 2cm inferior to AAA and superior to bifurcation of aorta.
