Although rare, the high mortality associated with visceral artery aneurysms highlights the importance of their prompt diagnosis and treatment. This report details the acute presentation, diagnosis and management of a 51-year-old man with a non-traumatic ruptured aneurysm of an aberrant left hepatic artery. This is just the second case of a rupture of this aberrant artery reported in the literature, and the only one to be treated using endovascular techniques. An up-to-date review of the investigation and surgical/endovascular management of visceral aneurysms in relation to this case is included.
