A case of the inferior pancreaticoduodenal artery aneurysm, associated with occlusion of the celiac axis is reported. The aneurysm seemed to be related to a high-flow state secondary to the associated occlusion of the celiac axis. The occlusion was typical of the atheromatous disease. The aneurysm was atherosclerotic in origin and was treated with resection and PTFE patching. Eighty months later an angiogram was performed, demonstrating a normal patency of the pancreaticoduodenal arcades. The treatment of these aneurysms is discussed, and the literature on this uncommon disease is reviewed.
