Celiac artery aneurysms (CAAs) account for 4% of all visceral arteries aneurysms. They are rare, vascular lesions, usually asymptomatic and recognized coincidentally while searching for causes of abdominal pain or other intra abdominal problems. Their significance is in their potential to rupture, which can lead to death. CAAs have no gender predilection, with most manifesting during the fifth decade of life. The diagnosis of these rare aneurysms is being established more frequently as our use of cross-sectional imaging increases. We present the case of isolated celiac artery aneurysm diagnosed incidentally by routine ultrasonography (USG) of abdomen for lower abdominal pain, followed by three dimensional CT angiography of abdomen in a 65-year-old female.
