A 69-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital for the treatment of a dorsal pancreatic artery aneurysm detected with abdominal computed tomography. Angiography revealed celiac axis occlusion, a large aneurysm in the dorsal pancreatic artery, and small aneurysms in the celiac and splenic arteries. Transcatheter arterial embolization with microcoils, N-butylcyanoacrylate, and lipiodol was successfully performed for the dorsal pancreatic artery and the aneurysm. In the 2 years after treatment the dorsal pancreatic artery aneurysm has not recurred, and other aneurysms have not enlarged.
