Hepatic artery aneurysms are rare vascular lesions, often with a nonspecific clinical presentation, and difficult to diagnose before rupture. We report the case of a patient with obstructive jaundice caused by a compression on the right biliary duct by a right hepatic artery aneurysm in which the diagnosis was suggested by magnetic resonance cholangiography and confirmed by Doppler sonography and preoperative digital subtraction angiography.

Abstract

Hepatic artery aneurysms are rare vascular lesions, often with a nonspecific clinical presentation, and difficult to diagnose before rupture. We report the case of a patient with obstructive jaundice caused by a compression on the right biliary duct by a right hepatic artery aneurysm in which the diagnosis was suggested by magnetic resonance cholangiography and confirmed by Doppler sonography and preoperative digital subtraction angiography.
