Resumen

Anatomical variations of the celiac and mesenteric artery have been described over the past two centuries; many of these variations will have no clinical repercussions and will only be found incidentally or during imaging studies. However, these variations can lead to severe complications if undetected during surgery, transplantation or when they are affected by ischemia. Therefore, prompt treatment is needed to overcome these dangerous scenarios. We present the case of a 71-year-old patient who had a celiacomesenteric trunk and developed transient intestinal ischemia; however, he suffered severe acidosis and hyperlactatemia that ultimately led to organ failure and death.
