Spontaneous dissection of visceral arteries is rare and diagnosis in unruptured cases is very difficult, We report a case of unruptured dissection of the celiac artery extended to the hepatic artery and splenic artery. Enhanced CT study showed occlusion of the common hepatic artery and a low density area in the spleen. Final diagnosis was made by angiography.
