Aneurysms of the right gastric artery are extremely rare lesions. They constitute less than 0.001% of reported visceral artery aneurysms.

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.
