Abstract

Vascular anatomical variations of the abdomen are very common. Awareness of these variations is of paramount importance in clinical practice mainly in achieving best results in minimal invasive or surgical vascular procedures. From surgical point of view, the preoperative knowledge of vascular anatomy and the relations to the surrounding structures and tissues aims to minimize inadvertent complications. Agenesis of the celiac trunk is one of the rare anatomical variations of the abdominal aorta. Limited number of cases have been reported in the medical literature, most of which are based on angiographic and cadaveric studies of adult humans.

In this paper, we report a case of absence of the celiac trunk that has been detected as a incidental radiological finding in a female patient, that was admitted with abdominal pain.
