The article focuses on aneurysm of the splenic artery. The aneurysm is usually single, but there are cases of multiple sacs, up to ten in one patient. The size varies from 0.5 cm to 15 cm in diameter. One may also find multiple additional ancurysmata of various arteries of the body. Splenomegaly due to portal hypertension, Banti's syndrome, Gaucher's disease or malaria has been considered contributing factors in aneurysm formation, due to elevated pressure in the splenic artery. Pregnancy, without being considered a causative factor, is supposed to play an important role in precipitating the rupture of an existing aueurysm.
