Aneurysms of the abdominal visceral arteries are infrequently encountered. Jejunal artery aneurysm (JAA) is one of the rarest visceral aneurysms, especially in young patients. Endovascular surgery tends to be an effective treatment for visceral artery aneurysms. Here, we report a case of symptomatic JAA with a peripheral dilated vessel in a young patient. However, in consideration of the patient's anatomic suitability and young age, we chose open surgical intervention with intraoperative angiography. Thus, we could resect the aneurysm and the peripheral dilated vessel, preserve the bowel, and leave no devices that could cause further complication. The choice of the most appropriate treatment should depend on aneurysm characteristics and the background of the patient.
