An inferior mesenteric artery aneurysm is considered one of the visceral artery aneurysms, which is extremely rare, although its incidence of detection has been increasing in recent years. A 59-year-old male patient with a renal cell carcinoma in the left kidney was diagnosed with an inferior mesenteric artery aneurysm and treated surgically. Computed tomography revealed atrophy of the right kidney and occlusion of the celiac trunk, superior mesenteric artery, and left renal artery. There were no complications during the hospital stay and no mortality or morbidity was observed at three months of follow-up. In conclusion, the treatment of inferior mesenteric artery aneurysms is usually recommended, due to possible complications such as rupture and thromboembolism with high mortality and morbidity rates.
