Fibromuscular dysplasia is a multifactorial arteriopathy most commonly affecting the renal and carotid arteries. In this report we present a case of visceral artery involvement, causing occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery and celiac trunk and resulting in visceral ischemia. Treatment consisted of superior mesenteric artery reimplantation. Visceral artery FMD can present as occlusive or aneurysmal disease and treatment depends on patient characteristics and symptoms.
