We ­report the ­case of a ­woman, age 65 ­years, who was ­admitted to our hos­pital for ­intense abdom­inal ­pain. Hemo­globin was 9.7 g/100 ml and com­puted tomog­raphy (CT) con­firmed the hemor­rhagic ­state ­showing intra­per­it­o­neal ­blood. ­After lap­a­rotomy a rup­tured aneu­rysm of the ­left gas­troep­i­ploic ­artery was diag­nosed. Liga­tion of the ­artery was per­formed ­with ­good ­results. ­This ­case is ­reported ­because the ­situs of ­this aneu­rysm is ­very ­rare.
