 :: Abstract 


Mesenteric vascular thrombosis, typically of the superior mesenteric artery, is a frequent occurrence in patients with hypercoagulable conditions. Isolated involvement of the celiac artery is rare. Patients with celiac artery thrombosis can present with an acute abdomen or occasionally with acid peptic symptoms. A delay in diagnosis is associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality. We present a rare case of splenic infarction with celiac trunk thrombosis in a 54-year-old patient with underlying antiphospholipid (APLA) syndrome who presented with epigastric pain that was mistaken for symptoms of acid reflux.


Keywords: Celiac artery, gastroesophageal reflux, thrombosis
