The article describes a case of successful diagnosis and surgical treatment of patients with aneurysm of the splenic artery (ASA) with atypical origin from the abdominal aorta. For a long time, ASA had symptoms like chronic pancreatitis. Due to the discharge of an atypical splenic artery computed tomography of its aneurysmal expansion was evaluated as an aneurysm of the celiac trunk. A decisive role in the topical diagnosis of aneurysm played angiography of the abdominal aorta and its visceral branches. The blood circulation of the spleen was compensated and authors preferred to preserve spleen with resection of the aneurysm. In the immediate postoperative period, signs of splenic ischemia and other complications are not logged in.
