Abstract

Pseudoaneurysms of the splenic artery is a well-known complication of pancreatitis. However, to the best of our knowledge, a subcentimetric intrapancreatic pseudoaneurysm (without an associated pseudocyst) causing massive gastrointestinal bleeding and distal main pancreatic duct obstruction is a rare clinical phenomenon. Herein, we present such a unique complication with computed tomography images and subsequent successful endovascular treatment.
