      A 66 year old male was admitted with left upper abdominal pain for one month. As an incidental finding, two aneurysms of the splenic artery measuring 4.8 cm and 1.9 cm were diagnosed using computed tomography angiography (A). The larger of the two aneurysms was embolised with 10 coils (32 mm × 60 cm, Penumbra, Alameda, CA, USA; black arrow) and a 5 × 26 mm stent graft (Lifestream, Bard Inc., Tempe, AZ, USA; red arrow) was successfully deployed across the smaller one (B). The patient made an excellent recovery with no complications at six month follow up.
