A 73-year-old woman consulted our hospital for epigastralgia. Dynamic CT examination revealed a debris in the gallbladder and 5mm aneurysm of cystic artery. She had no history of rupture of the aneurysm. Because of the risk of future rupture of aneurysm, laparoscopic cholecystectomy was performed. Laparoscopic clipping of cystic arterial aneurysm and subsequent cholecystectomy were performed. The histological examination revealed true-aneurysm. There are few reports of cystic artery aneurysm in Japan and almost all were reported as ruptured cases associated with cholecystitis. In conclusion, we performed laparoscopic cholecystectomy safely for unruptured aneurysm of the cystic artery.
