Abstract [en]

Neuroendocrine tumours are reported from the alimentary and respiratory tracts. A case of a 57-year-old man with an unsuspected histopathological finding of neuroendocrine tumour cells in the wall of a splenic artery aneurysm is reported.

Visceral artery aneurysms are uncommon but clinically important owing to the risk of rupture and of intra-abdominal bleeding.1 There are several possible aetiologies, atherosclerosis being one, and often the cause is unknown or at least not stated.1 The case of a patient with two visceral artery aneurysms and unsuspected histopathological finding is reported.
