Multiple aneurysms involving the celiac axis are extremely rare. Celiac artery aneurysms account for only 4% of all visceral aneurysms with 40% having concomitant aneurysms such as gastroduodenal artery (GDA) aneurysms. Development of a GDA aneurysm is associated with pancreatitis. If a GDA aneurysm ruptures, traditional repair is through open surgical techniques with significant morbidity and mortality as up to 50% occur in the setting of chronic pancreatitis. However, a ruptured GDA aneurysm causing pancreatitis has not been described previously. We report a case of successful endovascular treatment of a ruptured GDA aneurysm and concomitant celiac artery aneurysm leading to the resolution of acute pancreatitis.
