Pancreatic pseudoaneurysm - a case report

Chandan Kumar R, Dharmendra BL.

Abstract
Pancreatic pseudoaneurysm is a rare and major complication of pancreatitis associated with significantly high morbidity and mortality. It is due to the weakening of the vessel wall caused by the enzymatic action of the peripancreatic fluid. The most common cause is pancreatitis with pseudocyst formation. Other infrequent causes may include biliopancreatic surgeries, anastomotic leaks and trauma. The splenic artery is most commonly involved due to its proximity to the pancreas. The patient may be asymptomatic or present with bleeding complications or pain abdomen. If left untreated, it may be fatal. We present a case of a 21-year-old female with a pancreatic pseudoaneurysm of the splenic artery which was managed surgically for the same.

Key words: Pancreas, Pancreatitis, Pseudoaneurysm
