A 59-year-old woman was referred to the emergency room with acute abdominal pain. A CT scan revealed multiple dissections and microaneurysms of the superior mesenteric, the hepatic and the renal arteries. Stenting of the superior mesenteric artery was required. A non-invasive diagnostic procedure was instrumental to establish the diagnosis and guide appropriate treatment, which resulted in a rapid and sustained recovery.
