Background: There is a high mortality rate for aneurysms of the superior mesenteric artery, which account for 5.5% of visceral aneurysms. Case Report: We present the case of a 62-year-old woman diagnosed in our center with an aneurysm of a jejunal branch of the superior mesenteric artery, treated with an endovascular stent, who consulted in the emergency department for hypovolemic shock secondary to rupture of the aneurysm, associated with a mesenteric-enteric fistula that required extremely urgent surgery. In this operation, the first jejunal loop was resected and the neck of the aneurysm of the 1st jejunal branch was sutured after removal of the previous stent. The postoperative course was torpid and marked by an anastomotic leak. Conclusion: Aneurysms of the superior mesenteric artery are a rare pathology, with regard to diagnosis, this type of pathology is often silent but potentially lethal due to the high risk of rupture. Nowadays, we have different approaches to treat these lesions, individualizing the treatment according to each patient.
