Abstract

Splenic artery aneurysm was first described in 1770 by Beaussier who found the lesion at autopsy in the cadaver of a 60 year old woman. Clinically, the roentgen diagnosis of the aneurysm became based on the demonstration of a characteristic annular calcification in the left hypochondrium. In 1946, Wagner demonstrated a splenic artery aneurysm by arteriographic methods. Since then, the lesion and its complications have been seen and reported with increasing frequency. The authors were prompted to review our recent experiences with splenic artery aneurysm by a case in which a misdiagnosis resulted in a fruitless laparotomy. Their purpose in this report is to stress the need for accurate diagnosis to insure maximum patient management.
