A case is reported of an inferior mesenteric artery aneurysm that starts approximately 1 cm from its origin and ends at the proximal portion of the bifurcation of the sigmoidal and left colic arteries accompanied with complete absence of the celiac axis and superior mesenteric arteries. Additionally, left renal artery stenosis existed. The diagnosis was made by digital subtraction arteriography and confirmed by magnetic resonance arteriogram. Disease involving the inferior mesenteric artery is extremely uncommon. This may be the first reported case of neurofibromatosis in combination with renal artery stenosis and inferior mesenteric artery aneurysm associated with celiac and superior mesenteric artery occlusion and treated surgically.
