Abstract The authors refer to a 58-year female patient with truncus coeliacus agenesis. From the branches of tripus Halleri of a. gastrica sin., a hepatica comm. divides directly from aorta and a. lienalis from a. intercostalis post XII. 1. sin. In addition to anomalous division the unpaired arteries of abdominal aorta are also hypoplastic. The contribution draws attention to the fact that in the past vascular anomalies were considered clinically unimportant and their importance became manifest at the time of organ transplantation. The knowledge of vascular anomalies is required for taking the graft as well as during the transplantation itself.
