Focal stenosis of the proximal celiac trunk is noted secondary to extrinsic compression from a thickened median arcuate ligament with moderate dilatation of the post-stenotic segment.
CT features are most consistent with a median arcuate ligament syndrome due to celiac trunk compression by a thickened median arcuate ligament. Usually, the patient presents a chronic abdominal pain, aggravated by supine position.
