There are many reports upper abdominal major arterial aneurysms. However, an aneurysm of left inferior phrenic artery had never been reported. A 48-year-old woman with liver cirrhosis associated with hepatitis B viral infection was referred to department of surgery for treatment of aneurysm of left inferior phrenic artery. She underwent trans-arterial chemoembolization(TACE) for treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma three times, previously. On 20 months after last TACE, 7 mm sized highly enhancing nodular lesion of gastric fundus was found on follow-up abdomen-pelvis computed tomography (A-P CT). One year later, the size of this lesion increased to 18 mm, and an aneurysm was diagnosed. She underwent angiography and attempted embolization with an aneurysm of the left inferior phrenic artery, but access failed. We performed a laparoscopic vessel ligation. She recovered with no complication and discharged on the 3th postoperative day.
