Gastroduodenal artery pseudoaneurysms are rare complications of pancreatitis and commonly manifest as abdominal pain and gut bleeding due to rupture. Usually, these vascular complications are asymptomatic and are thus diagnosed incidentally on magnetic resonance imaging or computed tomography examination. Pseudoaneurysms should be treated immediately after diagnosis because of the higher rate of mortality (90%) in untreated cases, whereas 12% in treated cases. Herein, we describe a unique case of gastroduodenal artery pseudoaneurysm in a 29-year-old male patient with chronic pancreatitis, which was treated successfully with embolization.
