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.
