Abstract

Although the diagnosis of visceral pseudoaneurysm is unusual, it requires emergent attention due to the risk of rupture. We describe a 70-year-old man with a gastroduodenal artery pseudoaneurysm that manifested as recurrent hemorrhage. We highlight the possible etiologies, clinical presentations, diagnostic tools, and treatment options for this condition. In this instance, the patient was successfully treated by selective angioembolization. A visceral pseudoaneurysm should be considered in patients with abdominal pain and GI hemorrhage. At present, angioembolization is a first-line therapy.
