José Manoel da Silva Silvestre Wander Eduardo Sardinha Marcelo Piazzalunga Benedito Fernandes Fernando Motta Guilherme da Silva Silvestre About the authors

The isolated spontaneous dissection of the celiac artery without the concomitant dissection of the aorta is a rare condition seldomly described in the literature. The objective of the present study is to describe a case of this clinical entity in a 74-year-old, male patient, who was asymptomatic, and whose diagnosis was established by means of ultrasound and confirmed using computed angiotomography. The patient has been successfully followed up by means of clinical management for a period of 25 months.
