Hepatic artery aneurysm comprises only 20% of all visceral aneurysms. The classical triad of abdominal pain, hemobilia, and jaundice is seen in less than one-third of cases. Up to 60% of patients present with an abdominal catastrophe. In our case of hepatic artery aneurysm, the diagnosis was suggested by CT scan and confirmed by angiography. Its appearance is also demonstrated on sonogram and cholangiogram. To our knowledge, this is the first case to be reported where the aneurysm was demonstrated on multiple radiographic images.
