Visceral artery aneurysms are rare, often incidental findings due to unspecific or no symptoms. We report a unique case of a 54-year-old patient with a contained rupture of a common hepatic artery aneurysm, without panarteritis nodosa or immunoglobulin G4 association, into the right liver hilum, that led to shock, cholestasis, and liver function impairment. Aneurysm resection and cholecystectomy, followed by revascularization with a great saphenous vein celiacobihepatic bypass and Roux-en-Y hepaticojejunostomy were performed. The patient was discharged 13 days later. Liver function was normal, and the revascularization patency was confirmed at follow-up at 3 and 12 months.
