Spontaneous isolated dissection of the superior mesenteric artery (SID-SMA) is a rare condition often presenting with vague signs and symptoms. Although the disease entity is rare, the potential for morbidity and mortality is high. Computed tomographic angiography is the preferred imaging modality for identification of SID-SMA. It may be managed by conservative, surgical, or endovascular treatment based on clinical presentation, but there is no general consensus regarding the treatment strategy. Here, we describe a case of SID of SMA treated successfully with percutaneous endovascular stent placement.
