Abstract

INTRODUCTION: 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 (GDA) pseudoaneurysm manifest as recurrent hæmorrhage.

AREAS COVERED: We highlight the possible ætiologies, clinical presentations, diagnostic tools and treatment options for this condition. In this instance, the patient was successfully treated by selective angio-embolization.

EXPERT COMMENTARY: A visceral pseudoaneurysm should be considered in patients with abdominal pain and GI hæmorrhage. At present, angio-embolization is first-line therapy.
