Aneurism of the Celiac Axis.
This sometimes occurs in connection with aneurism of the upper portion of the abdominal aorta. Aneurism of its branches may occur, though it is quite rare. The symptoms of aneurism of the splenic and hepatic arteries are somewhat vague or similar to wrongs of the spleen and liver.
The tumor rarely ever reaches a large size, and the diagnosis is made post-mortem.
