Unusual arterial pattern of the gastrointestinal tract: inferior mesenteric artery arising from the iliac artery and corkscrew external iliac.


:Anatomical variations of the digestive system arteries are important due to their clinical significance. However, anomalies in the inferior mesenteric artery (IMA) are the least common compared with the celiac trunk and superior mesenteric artery. This report describes the case of a 67-year-old man with an extremely rare variant in which the IMA arises from the left common iliac artery, and the ipsilateral external iliac artery has a corkscrew pattern. These findings were depicted during computed tomography angiography of the abdomen and pelvis. This case is the first report of such a variation associated with a left external iliac artery turning into a double loop before forming the femoral artery. The embryological and clinical significance of such an anomaly are discussed.
