Abstract: A 57-year-old male presented with right upper abdominal lump since 3 months. He was diagnosed to have a hepatic artery aneurysm. He was investigated thoroughly but no cause was found. He was subjected to endovascular embolisation of the aneurysm using endovascular coils. Subsequently the aneurysm was completely occluded. Hepatic artery aneurysms are very rare among all visceral aneurysms. We report this rare case of hepatic artery aneurysm presenting as an abdominal lump. This case highlights the importance of early diagnosis and management of this rare entity as a rupture may be catastrophic.
