In the presence of pancreatitis, the enzymatic damage to the wall of splenic artery results in pseudoaneurysm formation. The clinical presentation is variable and ranges from asymptomatic to hemodynamic instability. The diagnosis of SAP is challenging in the presence of peripancreatic fluid collection or pseudocyst, where CT abdomen can miss small pseudoaneurysms. Angiography is a useful modality to establish a definitive diagnosis. We present a 49-year-old male with a history of recurrent pancreatitis due to alcoholism who presented with acute abdominal pain and was found to have acute pancreatitis. Abdominal CT scan showed a peripancreatic fluid collection and hyperdense lesion at the splenic hilum, which was diagnosed as SAP on angiography. A transcatheter embolization was performed with complete resolution of symptoms thereafter. Copyright (c) 2020 The Author(s).
