Aneurysms of the right gastric artery are extremely rare lesions. They constitute less than 0.001% of reported visceral artery aneurysms. A unique case of a ruptured right gastric artery aneurysm is presented. Angiographic diagnosis and endovascular treatment by right gastric artery embolization proved safe and efficacious, resulting in complete obliteration of the aneurysm with no adverse sequelae.
