Abstract

Introduction:Coeliac trunk supplies the derivatives of the foregut. Knowledge of its variations is useful for surgeons, gastroenterologists and radiologists. We report a case of low origin, unusual length and branches of coeliac trunk. Case report The coeliac trunk had a low origin (at the level of L2 vertebra) and was 5 cm in length. It gave origin to the right and left inferior phrenic arteries and terminated by giving splenic, left gastric and common hepatic arteries.Conclusion Unusual length and branches of coeliac trunk might cause confusions in diagnostic and surgical procedures.
