Background: Median arcuate ligament syndrome (MALS), also known as celiac artery compression syndrome, is characterized by gastrointestinal ischemia secondary to the compression of the median arcuate ligament of the diaphragm to the proximal celiac trunk.
Case Presentation: Herein, we aimed to report the Color Doppler Ultrasonography (CDUS) and Computerized Tomography (CT) findings of MALS in a 27-year-old man presenting with complaints of abdominal pain and slimming.
Conclusion: We think that MALS should be considered in young patients with persistent abdominal pain who are admitted with chronic epigastric pain. Non-invasive methods such as CDUS and CT should be used for diagnosis.
